Inna Braverman, Israeli CEO of clean energy company Eco Wave Power, was recently named as one of the women to be featured in a special United Nations art exhibit celebrating women leaders.  

The “Portraits of Progress: Women Powering the Global Goals” exhibit, displayed at the UN Headquarters in New York for most of March 2024, features portraits and stories of women from around the world who are working to develop solutions to advance Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Braverman’s portrait at the exhibit represents Goal No. 7: the generation of affordable and clean energy. Visitors can scan a QR code next to each portrait to listen to a message from the featured woman leader, in which she elaborates further on her particular Goal.

The project was initiated by Vital Voices Global Partnership, a non-profit co-founded by Hilary Clinton and Madeleine Albright. It aims to invest in women leaders who improve the world.  

The 36-year-old entrepreneur has developed an innovative technology for the generation of clean electricity from ocean and sea waves as part of her endeavors with Eco Wave Power.

Even before co-founding the company with Canadian businessman David Leb in 2011, Braverman has spent much of her life in an effort to find clean and safe energy solutions.

Her mission is personal: as a baby, she barely survived the Chernobyl nuclear explosion near her home in Ukraine. Her family immigrated to Israel when she was four years old. 

“I am extremely proud to be featured in this exhibition with other inspirational female leaders,” said Braverman.

“The Vital Voices recognition here at the United Nations is a powerful statement that women are meant to play a critical role in achieving the UN SDGs.”
