WIZO Commitment Awards - what they are, and how you can nominate the winners

WIZO in the UK is looking for nominations of candidates who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to changing lives and building futures, close to home or within the wider world


Music and the arts, promoting healthy eating and facilitating multicultural programmes on campus are among new categories for the latest WIZO Commitment Awards, launched at the official residence of Israeli ambassador Mark Regev this week.

WIZO was praised by Ambassador Regev for “shaping the vision of the Jewish national home”.

The awards, open to people of all faiths, recognise social activism and winners are offered a tour of Israel.

Categories include Commitment to Inspiring the Next Generation of Scientists and High-Tech Professionals, Commitment to Inspiring Women, Commitment to Multiculturalism on Campus, and many more.
