The Honorary Board of Advisors consists of diplomatic, business, religious, and community leaders with records of worldwide achievement that command respect and trust among both Israelis and Palestinians. Participation in the Honorary Board of Advisors does not reflect approval or disapproval of any particular issue or position; it reflects support of OneVoice, its methodology, and its critical objectives.
The Trustees Advisory Council consists of energetic and dynamic leaders across diverse sectors that have shown a commitment to public service and can contribute expertise in an area necessary to advance the mission of OneVoice. Only proven achievers with positions of influence and records of exceptional effectiveness are considered for this influential role. The Trustees Advisory Council holds at least one meeting per year. Members of the Trustees Advisory Council guide the organization through fundraising, strategic input, and overall advocacy.
The OneVoice Entertainment Council is a group of actors, singers, writers, directors, producers, and other entertainment industry professionals who support the efforts of Palestinians and Israelis to achieve freedom, security and self-governance through non-violent, democratic means. Members of the Council endorse the OneVoice "Proclamation of Principles for Reconciliation" and stand with all those who are part of this grassroots movement.
The Council of Experts consists of over 200 leading scholars, policy specialists, and thought leaders in matters of Middle Eastern studies, geopolitics, international security, evaluation and measurement analysis, international economics, and arbitration. These leaders from the Middle East and around the world provide input on tactical matters concerning the organization and its mission. Members of the Council of Experts acted as key contributors to the original OneVoice Proclamation for Principles of Reconciliation as well as the refinement of these Principles.
