Business for Peace at Harvard Business School

TYO’s Founder, Hani Masri, will speak about the role of women in economic development in the Middle East at an upcoming event at Harvard Business School. Participants from TYO’s project, “Fostering Women Entrepreneurs in Nablus” will also be featured.

The event is the second annual HBS conference on the Business of Peace, and will also feature:

  • Sir Ronald Cohen of TYO partner organization, the Portland Trust,
  • an HBS case study about challenges and opportunities in trade within and between Palestine and Israel and
  • discussion in the typical HBS case study method with businesspeople with interests in the Middle East, as well as interested Harvard professors and students from around the University.

We look forward to this chance for productive dialogue with such a diverse and talented group, and are sure that it will offer great added value for our Women Entrepreneurs project, in cooperation with the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women. Further information about the conference is included below, for those interested in attending.
