Iconic supermodel Naomi Campbell is slated to arrive in Israel next week to participate in an International Women's Day Event at the Peres Center for Peace in Jaffa.

The veteran supermodel is expected to receive a Women Leading Change award to honor of "her important work for women and communities in need across the world," the Peres Center said.  

Both Peres and Campbell will then participate in a joint moderated Q&A session and will honor Israeli women who are trailblazers in various fields in Israeli society. 

The center said that some 200 women are expected to attend the event including businesswoman Ofra Strauss, Adina Bar Shalom, daughter of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and founder of the Haredi College, and  Nadia Kinani, Principal of Hand in Hand, a bilingual school for Jewish and Arab children in Jerusalem.
