The sem­i­nar, en­ti­tled “Ed­u­ca­tional, En­tre­pre­neur­ial and Vol­un­teer Op­por­tu­ni­ties for Youth Em­pow­er­ment”, aimed at en­abling rep­re­sen­ta­tives from dif­fer­ent youth in­sti­tu­tions to iden­tify avail­able op­por­tu­ni­ties and op­tions for Kuwaiti youth to en­hance their skills and achieve more for them­selves, their fam­i­lies, and their com­mu­nity. Laila Al-Qatami, As­sis­tant Gen­eral Man­ager for Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions, at Gulf Bank said: “At Gulf Bank, our Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity pro­gram (CSR) is com­mit­ted to spon­sor­ing events that give back to Kuwait and so­ci­ety. One of our main CSR pil­lars is to sup­port events that em­power our Kuwaiti youth, and in par­tic­u­lar, ed­u­ca­tional and en­tre­pre­neur­ial pro­grams. We be­lieve that by in­vest­ing in these youth pro­grams, we are con­tribut­ing to build­ing and de­vel­op­ing hu­man cap­i­tal for our fu­ture. As such, we be­lieve that this sem­i­nar was ben­e­fi­cial to the par­tic­i­pants for the bet­ter­ment of their fu­tures and to bet­ter serve Kuwait.”

The sem­i­nar was open to the public and hosted over 150 guests com­prised of stu­dents and pro­fes­sion­als from var­i­ous fields and back­grounds.
