Plugging Female Bedouin Talent into Israel’s Tech Ecosystem

Active since 2022, Samana was established to provide university-educated women from Bedouin communities in northern Israel with the opportunity to join the tech workforce. The focal point of the project is a tech hub which has been specially constructed in the village of Zarzir, near Nazareth. In this women-only space, women from Bedouin communities in the North of Israel can be employed in high-wage roles while maintaining their cultural traditions. The hub is planned to operate as a Centre of Excellence specialising in QA (Quality Assurance) and QA automation for ERP and CRM systems, skills which are in high demand in the industry today.
