Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

KUWAIT: Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, one of the largest pri­vate com­pa­nies in the re­gion, has an­nounced its spon­sor­ship for the 32rd an­nual con­fer­ence of the Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Stu­dents (NUKS) USA Branch, the con­fer­ence will take place from the 25th to the 28th of Novem­ber in San Diego, Cal­i­for­nia, un­der the slo­gan of “Awak­en­ing Kuwait’s Dream”.

Se­nior Di­rec­tor - Cor­po­rate Strat­egy, BD, and M&A at Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, Dari AlRe­shaid Al-Bader said: “We, at Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, value the role of ed­u­ca­tion in de­vel­op­ing the econ­omy, and find­ing cre­ative so­lu­tions for the chal­lenges we face to­day. We seek to al­ways be present in events that im­prove ed­u­ca­tion and raise the stan­dard for Kuwaiti stu­dents, such as the an­nual con­fer­ence of the Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Stu­dents (NUKS).”

He added: “This con­fer­ence gath­ers Kuwaiti stu­dents from all ar­eas of the United States. Stu­dents enjoy it as a so­cial ac­tiv­ity, while we see it as an im­por­tant op­por­tu­nity to reach the max­i­mum num­ber of our spe­cial stu­dents. As part of our spon­sor­ship this year, we will host a pri­vate work­shop for merit schol­ars in the US, where we present to them dif­fer­ent po­ten­tial ca­reer paths and op­por­tu­ni­ties, with a few tips that will guide them in start­ing suc­cess­ful ca­reers. Al­ghanim In­dus­tries will also spon­sor a panel dis­cus­sion en­ti­tled ‘She’s a Leader’ on women in lead­er­ship po­si­tions. In ad­di­tion to that, we will have our employees present to an­swer stu­dents’ ques­tions about the com­pany, and the op­por­tu­ni­ties to be part of Al­ghanim In­dus­tries. I am also ex­cited to an­nounce that I will be on the judg­ing panel of the ‘Busi­ness Startup’ com­pe­ti­tion, tak­ing place dur­ing the con­fer­ence.

In 2014, Al­ghanim In­dus­tries launched “Al­ghanim In­dus­tries Fu­ture Lead­ers Pro­gram” (AFLP) that ex­tends over 12 months, and is de­signed to pro­vide re­cent, high-po­ten­tial Kuwaiti grad­u­ates with a com­pre­hen­sive in­tro­duc­tion to the dif­fer­ent busi­nesses and sup­port func­tions in Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, in­clud­ing world-class train­ing and de­vel­op­ment ac­tiv­i­ties. The com­pany also of­fers sum­mer in­tern­ship op­por­tu­ni­ties for cur­rent univer­sity stu­dents, offering them ex­po­sure to the pri­vate sec­tor cul­ture and gain work ex­pe­ri­ence dur­ing their sum­mer hol­i­day.
