On International Women's Day, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs launched the "Ambassador for a Day" initiative to promote women in diplomacy, women empowerment and gender equality.
14 foreign embassies in Israel, some headed by female Ambassadors, hosted students from Naamat-Lod high-school. The initiative allowed the students to get an insight of the work of an Embassy, to experience the life of an Ambassador, and aimed at inspiring them to get involved in diplomacy in the future.Ambassador for a day!— Adi Farjon (@Adi_Farjon) March 5, 2020
