Mrs. Judith Bronitzky

 

Co-CEO of ORMAT Technologies, Inc., which she had founded together with her husband, Yehuda. She had contributed a great deal to Israel’s export and had turned turbine export into one of the most prosperous fields in Israel’s industry.

Together with her husband, she had founded a professional - industrial high school, which is a unique example of entrepreneurship. Her extensive activities in education especially with youth who had dropped out of schools, encouraging them to continue their studies - are an enormous contribution to keeping Israel as a leading nation in science and technology.

As a business woman and industry entrepreneur, Judith Bronitzky is a role model to young women and women in general, who see her as paving a meaningful road for woman at large.

Her extensive business and research activities, as well as her numerous prestigious management awards, are proof that “The Glass Ceiling” is completely irrelevant when it comes to talented and motivated women in the technology world.

Mrs. Bronitzky is a role model in fulfilling the values that are an inherent part of HIT’s agenda, which attributes great importance to promoting gender equality and proper representation of women, especially in the fields of science and technology.

For all of the above she is granted an Honorary Degree.
