Batya Barzak, Daniel Dror and Anny Firer won the DELL-EMC
Scholarship and Shirin Zuabi and Nitzan Zamir won the Intel Scholarship for
Excellent Female Students.
At the award ceremony held in April, Orna Berry, vice president of Dell-EMC and
CEO of Excellence Center in Israel, said that science and technology are leading
the productivity of the economy, so there is a need to increase the number of
people working in these sectors. If less than 10% of entrepreneurs are women and
companies such as Dell-EMC and Intel athe percentage of women stands at about
25, clearly, we have an important task ahead of us.
Shlomit Weiss, Intel's vice president and Technion graduate, said that this is
an interest of the companies and the economy: the greater the diversity in
society, including gender, the more the results improve.
Congratulation to all the scholarships winners!
