Canadian experience in securing government contracts representation with suppliers: ideas worth adopting in Israel
ADVOCACYSikkuy’s “Seat at the Table” advocacy initiative works with the Prime Minister’s Office and other government ministries and agencies to identify barriers to equality at the government level and within Arab municipalities and develop strategies for eliminating these barriers. Sikkuy is also working directly with the PMO to advise and facilitate on the successful implementation of the $200 million, 5 year government program for economic development in Arab communities. The advocacy department works with Sikkuy’s research department to publish the annual “Equality Index,” cooperates with other civil society organizations, develops position papers and increases public awareness through the media. Sikkuy’s advocacy efforts also advance employment equity and fair representation of Arab citizens in the public and private sectors.
