The first "women for future leadership" course, seeking to train women in the Negev to enter positions of power in the public sector, was launched by the Negev Development Authority of the Ministry for Development of the Negev and Galilee this week.

The course was opened for women between the ages of 21 to 35 who want to influence and lead change in the public sphere in the Negev. Program participants will learn a combination of theoretical and practical knowledge, acquire tools for managing personal and public leadership skills, and will take part in meetings with public figures.

The course includes 85 academic hours of training and includes practical training. The program was developed in partnership with WePower, an Israeli women's leadership organization, the department of external studies at Sapir College, and the Hadassah Foundation.

"This unique program is part of a process of the Ministry of Development of the Negev and the Galilee and the Negev Development Authority for the development and empowerment of the residents of the Negev," said Sigal Shaltiel-Halevy, Director-General of the Ministry for the Development of the Negev and the Galilee.

"As part of the process, the Negev Development Authority operates a variety of projects that will lead the Negev region toward social action and encouraging the economic development of the Negev."
