The International Festival for Women’s Films in Jerusalem is the only festival for women’s films in Israel.

A joint tour for the Partner administrations and the fighters of the ‘Shahar’ battalion

For 16 years, Partner has been adopting the Shahar Battalion – the fighting battalion in the rescue brigade of the Home Front Command, a mixed battalion of men and women fighters. Led by the battalion commander Lt. Col. Jordan Shukron, the female fighters of the battalion, who have only recently been active in Gaza, are joining the tour together with the managers of Partner at the Design Museum in Holon, where the “Equal Breaker” exhibition is currently being held. The exhibition, the first of its kind in which over 120 projects from Israel and the world are presented, deals with the connection between design and gender.

Over the years, Partner adheres to a policy of promotion and equality between women and men. The conditions of employment of the male and female workers at Partner are not affected by one gender or another, but are determined according to the nature of the position and its professional performance only. About 50% of the top management at Partner are staffed by women.

Partner calls on women who are engaged in the professions of engineering, programming, information systems, technicians, sales, service and marketing to join the company. Similar to last year, the company recently launched a “company brings a company” promotion, in which an employee who recommends a new employee will receive a grant of NIS 3,000.
