Previously, Ms. Hani managed the Tourism and Community Relations Area for the Wadi Atir project in the Negev desert and coordinated economic development and women’s empowerment initiatives at AJEEC-NISPED.

Ms. Hani completed the Uniqueness and Togetherness Program at the Tikkun movement and the Peer Program at the Heschel Center for Sustainability. She has also participated in a program focused on building an inter-religious vision for peace that brings together Muslim and Jewish leaders. Additionally, she is an activist and board member of various organizations promoting peace and coexistence and delivers lectures on a range of subjects across the country.

In 2018, Ms. Hani received the Sami Michael Prize and was featured in Yedioth Ahronoth’s prestigious list of fifty social heroes. In 2020, she was awarded the Israeli Hope Prize and recognized as one of the twenty most influential individuals in the Negev by Yedioth Hanegev local newspaper.

I am grateful for the opportunity to participate in the training on conducting negotiations from a gender-oriented perspective. This unique and diverse program allowed me to experience the significance of diversity in UN Resolution 1325. I was introduced to a wealth of expertise, ideas, and approaches that I had not previously encountered, despite being a peace activist and feminist for many years.
