Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Zain, the lead­ing telecom­mu­ni­ca­tions com­pany in Kuwait, an­nounced its strate­gic part­ner­ship of the Youth Em­pow­er­ment Sym­po­sium for the fifth con­sec­u­tive year. The an­nounce­ment came dur­ing the open­ing and the fifth an­niver­sary cer­e­mony that wit­nessed the pres­ence of HH the Amir’s rep­re­sen­ta­tive, HE Sheikh Sal­man Al-Ho­moud Al-Sabah, Min­is­ter of In­for­ma­tion and Min­ster of State for Youth Af­fairs. The Youth Em­pow­er­ment Sym­po­sium’s or­ga­ni­za­tional com­mit­tee rec­og­nized Zain’s strate­gic part­ner­ship ever since the ini­tia­tive was first born five years ago. Zain’s sup­port of the sym­po­sium came in line with its long term strat­egy of pro­vid­ing the nec­es­sary sup­port to na­tional ini­tia­tives aimed at up­lift­ing the ca­pa­bil­i­ties and skills of Kuwaiti youth.

Waleed Al Khashti, Zain Kuwait’s Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions and Re­la­tions Di­rec­tor said: “our par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Youth Em­pow­er­ment Sym­po­sium to­day co­in­cides with the fifth con­sec­u­tive year of Zain’s strate­gic part­ner­ship with this na­tional aca­demic ini­tia­tive”. Al Khashti added: “the sym­po­sium ex­cels at invit­ing lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional ex­perts, pro­fes­sion­als, and pioneers in the fields of busi­ness, in­for­ma­tion tech­nol­ogy, eco­nom­ics, and so­cial me­dia to share their per­sonal and pro­fes­sional ex­pe­ri­ences with the Kuwaiti youth”.

Al Khashti con­cluded: “there is no doubt that Zain’s sup­port of this na­tional ini­tia­tive since its in­cep­tion stands as an in­di­ca­tion of the com­pany’s strong be­lief in the youth and the im­por­tance of their devel­op­ment across all fields of ac­tiv­ity.” The Youth Em­pow­er­ment Sym­po­sium, to be held 25 - 26 October, pro­vides lo­cal youth with an ideal op­por­tu­nity to gain valu­able in­sights from a num­ber of in­ter­na­tion­ally and lo­cally renowned in­dus­try pioneers, aca­demics, and ex­perts.

This year’s speak­ers in­clude Jeremy Liew, first in­vestor in Snapchat and part­ner at Light­speed Ven­ture Part­ners, Jen­nifer Boulanger, head of global re­cruit­ment in book­ing.com, Corey Owens, for­mer head of global pub­lic pol­icy at Uber Tech­nolo­gies and head of global pub­lic pol­icy at We Work, as well as a num­ber of prom­i­nent lo­cal speak­ers. Zain’s pres­ence in this na­tional event show­cases the com­pany’s ded­i­ca­tion to em­pow­er­ing the en­tre­pre­neur­ial skills of youth in Kuwait. The sym­po­sium de­liv­ers out­stand­ing knowl­edge to tal­ented young peo­ple to be able to progress in their fields of in­ter­est as well as to spark the light of en­thu­si­asm within them.
