Old Girls Network
Last January, Israeli women who work in high-tech set up their own branch of the womens’ international networking organization “DigitalEve,” which has more than 20 branches worldwide. The Jerusalem Post reported In October. So far “DigitalEve” in Israel has about 160 members. The Post noted that women in Israel especially need to form their own networks, because most of the power players in high-tech originated from army intelligence units, the old-boys’ network par excellence, a fact that effectively shuts women out of the loop.
