While females still represent only a small fraction of the CEOs and managers in Israel’s booming hi-tech sector, one woman at the top is confident that times are changing.

“If a woman wants to build a career, she can reach any [position],” says Anya Eldan, general manager of the Israel Innovation Authority’s Start- Up Division – formerly the Economy Ministry’s Chief Scientist’s Office, which aims to support the early development stages of technological initiatives. “There are more and more women in key positions.”
