My training has taught me how different the narratives of parties to conflicts in Israel and around the world are, and how important it is to recognize them and the injustices caused to both sides as a basis for creating trust. I was inspired by the hope of exceptional women who believe that women’s involvement in negotiations can help resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. I believe that the network we created between ourselves is of great importance, and that being able to listen to and contain so many different narratives that have been piling up pain and hurt for so many years can serve us even when we sit at the negotiating table.
