An awards ceremony at Beit Hanassi Thursday night accorded special recognition to employers who encourage women to develop their potential by promoting them according to their merits. The women's equal-opportunity campaign, headed by Vice Premier Ehud Olmert in his capacity as Minister of Industry, Commerce, and Trade, aims to enable women to reach top-level management positions, provided that they have the necessary qualifications for the job. Among the recipients of awards were the Karmiel Municipality, the Ministry for Construction and Housing and the Isrotel hotel chain. Sixty percent of the senior positions in the Karmiel Municipality are held by women. In the Housing and Construction Ministry, the ratio, while quite high in relation to other ministries, is still just below the equality balance, standing at 45%. At Isrotel, it's exactly even with senior positions divided on a 50:50 basis between men and women.
