The Ma’antech coalition is the only project led by hi-tech industry CEOs for increased vocational variety. Israeli hi-tech is looking for high-quality human capital in order to continue growing, and there is a great deal of untapped potential amongst Israeli Arabs.
The goal of Ma’antech, founded by the President of Israel together with Cisco Systems in 2010, is to jump-start a natural process of integration of Israeli Arabs in hi-tech by supporting both employers and candidates in the recruiting process.
The target group comprises Arab students and engineers from the world of technology who have not yet become part of hi-tech.
The project includes high-quality identification of engineers and students, assessment meetings, individual and group interview preparation, technological preparation as necessary, as well as in-job vocational diversity workshops.
Ma’antech operates the Mentors program on university campuses, helping increase exposure and locate students for the project. Ma’antech also provides a mentorship program, in which an experienced engineer is paired with a potential candidate, serving as a guide in finding a position that suits the candidate’s qualifications.
The Ma’antech coalition welcomes additional companies and organizations who wish to join the initiative and enjoy a variety of CVs from high-quality human resources, preparatory training for employment, and advice on the matter.
