The Advisory Council, which meets in Israel biannually, is tasked with providing the Foundation with ongoing assistance and advice on issues of policy, strategy and evaluation.
The Advisory Council acts as a ‘critical friend’ – its primary purpose is to advise on overall strategy and direction; to provide insights on appropriate methods of monitoring, assessment and evaluation; to help establish and develop the foundation’s position within networks of practice; and to afford constructive challenges to its assumptions and operating procedures.
