IAC – “Uncompromising: Yarden Gerbi”

November 17, 2020 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

IAC Mishelanu presents a special lecture by Israeli 2013 gold-winning Judo world-champion, 2016 bronze medalist, and Sephardi female entrepreneur, Yarden Gerbi – sharing her story “Uncompromising”.
This incredible event was made possible by the Israel on Campus Coalition (ICC), Hillel International, StandWithUs, Students Supporting Israel (SSI), the Jewish Agency for Israel, Hasbara Fellowships, Alpha Epsilon Pi, and JIMENA.
Yarden will share her insights about handling Olympics competitions and rivalries, success and failure, recognizing individual strengths and weaknesses alongside with technical and mental abilities. These insights allow the participants to develop their career and business (business mentoring).
Yarden’s story is an inspiration to many businesspeople, athletes, educators, children and teens. Yarden’s challenge towards gender barriers in a sport that requires both strength and strategic skills, combined with the tools she developed to face these challenges allows her audience to find within themselves their own personal ideas and abilities on their own quest of breaking their glass ceiling.
