Jasmine: Promoting Businesses Owned by Jewish and Arab Women

Jasmine: Promoting Businesses Owned by Jewish and Arab Women

Jasmine works to expand economic, professional and personal opportunities for all Israeli women-from all population sectors and ethnic, financial and religious backgrounds-in order to enable women in Israel to participate to the fullest extent possible in the Israeli economy. In doing so, Jasmine elevates the status of Israeli women, advances Israel's economy and strengths Israeli society as a whole.

 

All of Jasmine's programs assist the Israeli Arab sector through two different complimentary paths. In one path, Jasmine implements and designs programs that are specifically for Israeli Arab women, reflecting their unique needs and challenges in seeking and excelling in their employment, and in business ownership. These programs include a computer and technology program that trains women in the field to be mentors and business leaders, and other training programs. In parallel, every one of Jasmine's programs recognizes the shared challenge faced by all Israeli women, including Arab, Haredi, and secular women. These programs create opportunities for economic and cross-community partnership, and foster co-existence, often times specifically taking place in mixed Jewish-Arab cities for this purpose. They include a micro-loan program for low-income peripheral communities; job training programs for economically marginalized women; an annual conference for all Israeli businesswomen; a trilingual portal that hosts women-owned business websites and online shops for free; and various training and mentorship programs for women seeking gainful employment, small-business owners and women business leaders.
