The female revolution of the Technion

From the article in YNET

“ A Gender change at the Technion on all levels. A survey conducted by Yedioth Ahronoth and Ynet indicates that the Technion is not only a leader in the field of studies, but also takes care of the advancement of women. 44% of all students who began their studies at the Technion this year are women. 27 new faculty members joined the institution, nine of them women. From the beginning of 2022, a record number of seven deans will serve for the first time at the Technion. The number of deans in the institution is 13.

Another dramatic change is in the number of women on the senior appointments committee, which is considered one of the most important in any academic institution. While two years ago there was no woman on this committee, in the next committee three women and five men will serve. “
