Number of Arabs in Israeli High-Tech Soars – Amitai Ziv (Ha’aretz)
Since 2008, the number of Arab engineers in high-tech has risen nearly 20-fold – from 350 men in 2008 to 6,600 men and women now, says Sami Saadi, founder and CEO of Tsofen, which works to integrate Arabs into Israel’s high-tech industry.
Some 700 Arab engineers join Israel’s high-tech industry every year, and 25% of Arabs working in high-tech are women.
