Throughout the 70 years since the establishment of the State of Israel, the people of Israel have transformed an agricultural kibbutz society into a start-up nation, and women play a significant part in its development and growth. From the first Israeli female Prime Minister Golda Meir to the female Nobel Prize scientist and female pilots in the Israeli Air Force, to name a few, women occupy prominent roles in Israel’s government, politics, legal, tech and business sector, social and cultural life. Nowadays, Hong Kong has its first female Chief Executive, first female Stock Exchange chief, first female judges to join the city’s Court of Final Appeal and first female to lead a global United Nations Organization – the World Health Organization –, with countless other outstanding women serving as principle government officials, legal and medical practitioners, in top management of banks and financial institutions, and as entrepreneurs and civic leaders. The forum serves as a platform to connect generations of women and men from Israel and Hong Kong to celebrate, and be inspired and empowered by women, and to further enhance the economic, educational and cultural ties between Israel and Hong Kong.
