Zain platinum sponsor of NUKS USA’s 33rd annual conference
Zain, the leading telecommunications company in Kuwait, announced its Platinum sponsorship of the 33rd annual conference of the National Union of Kuwaiti Students in the United States (NUKS USA), which is set to be held from the 24th - 26th November 2016 in San Francisco, California, under the patronage of HE the Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education Dr Bader Al-Essa and the attendance of the Kuwaiti Ambassador to the US Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al-Jaber Al-Sabah.
Zain expressed its pride in being the main supporter of this national event for 13 consecutive years, as it is considered the largest gathering of Kuwaiti students abroad. The company’s support comes in line with its Corporate Sustainability and Social Responsibility strategy towards the youth and education sectors and its belief in the importance of connecting with the country’s youth abroad.
Each year, Zain contributes to the event by organizing and participating in a number of cultural and sporting activities. Zain Kuwait’s Chief Executive Officer Eaman Al-Roudhan will be participating in a discussion panel alongside a number of prominent local leaders. Additionally, the company will recognize and honor the top performing Kuwaiti students studying in the US.
During this year’s conference, Zain will also sponsor the sports discussion panel that will feature prominent Kuwaiti sports figures as well as organize the annual students football tournament.
The company will also participate in the event’s careers fair through its own booth to offer students career opportunities and share its leading experience in the telecom sector.
Zain’s presence in the event conveys its enthusiasm to interact with the future generations of Kuwaiti youth, especially those who pursue their education abroad, as the NUKS USA conference is one of the largest gatherings of Kuwaiti students outside of Kuwait. The distinctive event appeals to students on both an intellectual and social level and it serves as an open forum for them to exchange opinions and views regarding important domestic issues with the presence of distinguished figures from the Kuwaiti society.
Zain sees its annual participation in the conference as part of its responsibility as a leading national company to help provide bright and enthusiastic young Kuwaitis who are looking to enter the job market with suitable career development opportunities.
Participating in this event affirms Zain’s role as a leading national company that takes the development of young people seriously, with the ultimate intention to induce positive change within the Kuwaiti society.
