We consider gender and diversity to be a crosscutting issue for our work in all programs.
In order to promote our goals, we build partnerships with Israeli NGOs, academic institutions, think tanks and other strategic stakeholders. Following a strategic planning process, we have
restructured our application procedures and no longer have a set pre-proposal
deadline. We mostly initiate cooperations with project partners, however, if you would like to discuss a project that is particularly relevant to the goals described below, please contact the respective HBS staff member.
In the Environment and Sustainability program, our focus is on policy development and advocacy with decision makers on the local and national levels. Our issue areas are climate and energy policy, sustainable communities, resource management, green growth and environmental-social justice.
