Lian Najami Tour

10/02/2019 |

Lian Najami, Israel’s first Arab Rhodes Scholar, shares a unique perspective in “Life in Israel with Lian: Minorities and Shared Existence” based on her experiences growing up in a liberal Muslim family, attending a Christian high school, and volunteering in a reform Jewish community centre.

Lian is determined and passionate about empowering Arab women to achieve economic independence, raising awareness to issues pertinent to minorities, and acting as an advocate for those with invisible illnesses and different abilities. Fluent in five languages, she was featured at the 2016 Forbes 30 under 30 summit in Israel for her leadership role within the Arab community and served as a Lantos Fellow in the US Senate in 2017.

She will be touring UK university campuses and communities alike from February 18th – February 22nd.
