Making Waves: Reflections of Israeli and U.S. Female Naval Leaders

12:00PM - 1:00PM  


Contact Consulate General of Israel to New England

Register in advance. Join us for an inspiring program that features the stories of junior and senior female naval officers from America and Israel, including Rear Admiral Shoshana Chatfield (U.S.), Lieutenant Junior Grade Kathryn Wesdyk (U.S.), Lieutenant Commander (Reserves) Shenhav Ruttner (Israel), and Lieutenant Commander (Reserves) Or Cohen (Israel). 

Ambassador Meron Reuben, Consul General of Israel to New England, will offer introductory remarks.

We will hear about what motivated these women to aspire to leadership positions in settings often lacking in female role models. What challenges have they encountered, and what opportunities have they seized along the way? As women, what are their sources of empowerment, and what similarities and differences do American and Israeli women experience in the military?

Join us on their journeys as women breaking glass ceilings and making waves!

This event will be on Zoom (register above) and also live on our Facebook
