Our Vision

Equal representation around decision-making tables

WePower promotes gender equality at all levels of society. We strive to create an equal, sustainable society, in which there will be a 50:50 representation of women and men. At the decision-maker level, women can influence resource decisions and promote initiatives directly and optimally.

There is an urgent need to concentrate resources and socio-economic initiatives to change the current situation. The accelerator program, spearheaded by Dr. Adv. Orit Rishpi, chairwoman of WePower, directly responds to this issue.
