“As part of the IEC’s policy to integrate diverse populations with an emphasis on promoting women in the electricity professions, the company is paving another path for a community with huge potential that has not yet been realized,” said Shlomi Tzarfati, IEC’s Vice Presidet of Human Resources.

The program is a joint venture of Atidim, the Ministry of Economy, and the Keren Yahad, in collaboration with Mifal Hapayis in the Kivan Center who focus on employment training for the ultra-Orthodox community in Jerusalem.

At the end of the program, its graduates are expected to integrate into professional positions in the company's offices, while creating a work environment adapted to the ultra-Orthodox sector.
