Kav Mashve is an Israeli non-profit organization which promotes equal employment opportunities for Arab university graduates within the Israeli business sector. The organization was founded in 2007 by Mr. Dov Lautman, who was a prominent Israeli industrialist and a recipient of the Israel Prize for Life Achievement, in conjunction with the Manufacturers Association of Israel. 

Kav Mashve works in three main arenas:


Training to open doors for candidates from the Arab society


Preparation for the world of jobs and networking with potential employers and jobs

High Schoolers

Career orientation with emphasis on academic programs and wanted professions in the market

The Problem: Employment inequality for Israel’s Arab citizens is a major obstacle towards achieving social justice in Israeli society today. Arabs constitute 20.7% of Israeli society but only:

13% of the general workforce
3-5% of the business market
0.3% of management

Arabs with academic degrees face challenges in finding appropriate employment in their fields: 46.5% of Arabs with academic degrees do not pursue employment in the Jewish work force
20% of graduates of engineering and science degrees are employed in those fields
51% of Arabs with degrees in law, economics, accounting and business management are employed in those fields

Kav Mashve has identified four major barriers preventing Arab professionals with academic degrees from finding employment in their fields: insufficient early career guidance; inadequate solutions for soft skills training; lack of professional networks; and prejudice. The result is the perpetuation of social and economic inequality in Israeli society.

Today, Kav Mashve acts as an R&D agency, implementing and developing innovative programs to be adopted by the Israeli government.


Kav Mashve was founded by Dov Lautman, Dr. Irit Keinan, the Manufacturers ‘Association and the employers’ association in the economy. The management and establishment of the association was chosen by Adv. Irit Tamir, who served as CEO since its establishment until 31.12.2011. Kav Mashve is run by Jews and Arabs, businessmen, human resources and society.

“תמיד חלמתי להיות עורכת דין,  במיוחד לאחר שלקחתי קורסי משא ומתן וגישור בתיכון. במהלך השנה האחרונה בלימודים, השתתפתי ב”מועדון המשפטנים” של קו משווה. רכשתי המון מיומנויות וכלים, שיעזרו לי להתחיל את הקריירה כעורכת דין. כמו שאבא תמיד אומר לי “מסע של אלף מיל מתחיל בצעד אחד” וקו משווה היה הצעד הראשון במסע הזה. במהלך התכנית עשיתי נטוורקינג והכרתי הרבה אנשים ומעסיקים פוטנציאליים עתידיים. מלחיץ מאוד לחשוב כל הזמן על למצוא את התמחות החלומות שלך, כך שזה הופך להיות הפוקוס העיקרי של הלימודים.

איימן השתתף במועדון הכלכלנים של קו משווה, מספר על התכנית: “עברתי ראיונות עבודה לפני ואחרי שהשתתפתי במועדון הכלכלנים בקו משווה. היתה לתכנית השפעה משמעותית בכל הקשור להכנות להשתלבות בשוק העבודה. הסימולציות וההדרכות נתנו לי יותר ביטחון עצמי, כיוון שהתמקדנו לא רק בנקודות החולשה אלא גם בנקודות הכוח של כל משתתף. יתר על כך, הקדישה מנחת התכנית שעות רבות לעזור לכל משתתף בהכנה לראיונות. אחרי שהשתתפתי במועדון הכלכלנים התקבלתי להתמחות בחברת דלויט – Deloitte, אחת הפירמות העולמיות לייעוץ וראיית חשבון.”

הטלנטים שלנו – דאנא משארקה

תכירו את דנה משארקה, בוגרת מועדון הכלכלנים של קו משווה. דנה למדה כלכלה ומערכות מידע באוניברסיטת חיפה, ובמהלך שנת הלימודים האחרונה שלה היא השתתפה במועדון הכלכלנים שקו משווה הקימה באוניברסיטה. “בזכות המועדון וההכוונה של מנחת המועדון, ליאת רמתי-נבון, רכשתי כלים רבים ומיומנויות חשובות להשתלבות בשוק העבודה במשרה התואמת את תחום הלימודים שלי, ובמיוחד ההכנה לראיון העבודה ומבחני המיון וכדומה.” לאחרונה התחילה דנה לעבוד בחברת אינטל בתחום התכנון ותפעול מעבדות. כל הכבוד דנה, מאחלים לך קריירה מוצלחת ומספקת!
