Live Event: Introducing TAUi's Dream Team

Our Live Event is just around the corner! Find out more about our panelists, each carrying an impressive bounty of experience as global citizens.

10 November 2021



Though the past two years have provided our world with many challenges, society was forced to take a pause and reconsider the ways in which we manage. 


One of the most positive developments of this era has been caused by reflecting on how to use the tools we have always had to make our lives easier.


With modern technology, we are constantly connected to the world. Leaving a global impact is right at our fingertips - the key is to know how to access such success. 


Join TAU International’s Live Event on November 14th, 2021 and hear three impactful speakers from the worlds of academia, bio-tech and international diplomacy and learn what it takes to become a global citizen today.


Keep reading and learn more about the speakers, Professor Milette Shamir, Professor Ido Aharoni, and Ms. Ozer-Armon, to get a sneak-peak at our exciting webinar. 



Milette Shamir


Milette Shamir truly believes in the power of global citizenry, and does it right by way of Tel Aviv University.


Recently featured in the Jerusalem Post, Professor Shamir stands behind the fact that "Tel Aviv University is committed to fostering the next generation of global citizens, both in Israel and abroad, that can work together to ensure the common good in the years to come."


Professor Milette Shamir is the Vice President for Academic International Collaboration at Tel Aviv University. She is also a researcher in the field of American Studies at the Faculty of the Humanities. 


From 2015 to 2019 she served as Vice Dean of the Humanities for Academic Affairs. She co-founded TAU’s American Studies program in 2006, and served as its head for thirteen years. She served as chair of the Department of English and American Studies from 2006 to 2009. In 2012 she founded TAU’s pioneering undergraduate program for international students—the BA in Liberal Arts—and served as its academic director until 2016.


Prof. Shamir will be discussing why an international education is crucial today by providing direct examples from the impact TAU leaves both in the classroom and beyond.


Professor Ido Aharoni


Before joining the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Aharoni earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree (magna cum laude) from Tel Aviv University with a joint-major in Film and Television, Sociology and Anthropology. He later earned a master’s degree in Mass Communications from Emerson College in Boston. In 1993 Aharoni attended the special Hebrew University program in Government and Diplomacy for Foreign Service Cadets.


Aharoni has been Israel's longest serving Consul-General in New York and the tri-state area to date. He held that position with the rank of Ambassador for six years (2010-2016), overseeing the operations of Israel’s largest diplomatic mission worldwide. Ido Aharoni is a Global Distinguished Professor of international relations at New York University’s Graduate School of Arts and Science. 


Aharoni is a 25-year veteran of Israel’s Foreign service. He is a public diplomacy specialist, founder of the Brand Israel Program and a well-known nation branding practitioner. Professor Aharoni’s career as both a diplomat and advocate for Israel has created booming conversation regarding processes of nation branding and the impact of technology on international ties. 


Professor Aharoni will surely be the greatest source for all angles related to Israel, though to be a true global citizen one also needs to practice global solidarity. Get a sneak peek to his time on our panel and read Jerusalem Post’s recent interview with the Professor. 



Tzipi Ozer-Armon


Ms. Ozer-Armon holds a BA magna cum laude in Economics from Tel Aviv University, an MBA majoring in Finance and Marketing, and she is an AMP graduate of the Harvard Business School. 


Ms. Ozer-Armon has two decades of experience in senior management positions in various fields and she is currently the CEO of Lumenis. 


She joined Lumenis in 2012. During her tenure, Ms. Ozer-Armon led Lumenis through a comprehensive growth and profitability turnaround, as well as an IPO on the NASDAQ (2014) and a successful acquisition process (2015). At the beginning of 2020 Lumenis was acquired by a private fund for 1.2 B dollars. Before joining Lumenis, Ms. Ozer-Armon headed the Japanese market activities of Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (Nasdaq: TEVA), a business with a turnover of more than $800M. 


Ms. Ozer-Armon’s successes in her field show how well integrated she is into the fabric of consumer communities and the ability to access worldwide needs through technological connections. But, to leave a global impact through business, one must learn to be a “global employee”. Ms. Ozer-Armon will surely be able to enlighten all of our panel guests and leave a valuable message behind.
