Kuwait Times - - LOCAL -

Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, one of the largest pri­vate com­pa­nies in the region, con­cluded its spon­sor­ship for the 33rd an­nual con­fer­ence of the Na­tional Union of Kuwaiti Students (NUKS) USA branch, which took place from 24 to 27 of Novem­ber in San Fran­cisco, Cal­i­for­nia, un­der the slo­gan ‘Youth Aware­ness for a Last­ing Na­tion’.

The con­fer­ence was con­ducted un­der the pa­tron­age of the Min­is­ter of Ed­u­ca­tion and Higher Ed­u­ca­tion, Dr Bader Al-Essa, and was at­tended by the Am­bas­sador of Kuwait in the United States, Sheikh Salem AlSabah, as well as a num­ber of promi­nent me­dia fig­ures and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from sev­eral pri­vate sec­tor com­pa­nies.

Al­ghanim In­dus­tries par­tic­i­pated in the ca­reer fair, where rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the com­pany hosted a work­shop to help students build a strong re­sume. They were also present at the com­pany’s booth dur­ing the fair to an­swer students’ questions about the com­pany and avail­able job op­por­tu­ni­ties. With the con­clu­sion of the con­fer­ence’s activities, Al­ghanim In­dus­tries held a draw as part of the “Night Show”, and pre­sented the win­ners with valu­able gifts from X-cite.

Re­gard­ing Al­ghanim In­dus­tries’ spon­sor­ship of this year’s NUKS con­fer­ence, Head of the Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions Depart­ment at Al­ghanim In­dus­tries, Ab­dul­la­teef Ab­du­lazeez Al-Sharikh, said: “We par­tic­i­pate in this con­fer­ence ev­ery year be­cause it is the largest gath­er­ing of Kuwaiti students in the United States, and it gives us an op­por­tu­nity to in­ter­act di­rectly with these ex­cep­tional students. We at Al­ghanim In­dus­tries rec­og­nize the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion, and that is why we ded­i­cate many of our Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity ini­tia­tives to­wards it. We also con­tin­u­ously train and de­velop our em­ploy­ees through our in­house learn­ing and de­vel­op­ment depart­ment. We wish all of our students in the United States the best of luck dur­ing their stud­ies and wish them success in their pro­fes­sional ca­reers. Our youth have huge potential, and we would be happy to have them as Al­ghanim In­dus­tries in­terns or em­ploy­ees in the near fu­ture.”

The com­pany has been ac­tively work­ing to in­crease its Kuwaiti work­force through a va­ri­ety of ini­tia­tives. One ex­am­ple is the Al­ghanim Fu­ture Lead­ers Pro­gram, which is a spe­cial pro­gram to de­velop the pro­fes­sional skills of tal­ented Kuwaitis who have re­cently grad­u­ated from col­lege. In ad­di­tion, the Kuwaiti Men­tor­ing Pro­gram gives Kuwaiti em­ploy­ees the op­por­tu­nity to de­velop their lead­er­ship ca­pa­bil­i­ties through the en­gage­ment and coun­sel of the com­pany’s se­nior lead­ers. Build­ing a strong Kuwait work­force is a strate­gic pri­or­ity for the com­pany, and its par­tic­i­pa­tion in the NUKS con­fer­ence is an im­por­tant part of these ef­forts.

The spon­sor­ship of the an­nual NUKS con­fer­ence in the United States comes as part of Al­ghanim In­dus­tries’ Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) pro­gram, which is com­mit­ted to em­pow­er­ing the un­der­priv­i­leged, sup­port­ing ed­u­ca­tion and en­cour­ag­ing en­trepreneur­ship. It is worth not­ing that the com­pany was the Strate­gic Spon­sor for the fifth an­nual Tm­keen Youth Sym­po­sium, an ini­tia­tive that pro­vides youth with valu­able in­sights about en­trepreneur­ship from in­dus­try lead­ers, aca­demics and ex­perts, and was held un­der the pa­tron­age of the Emir, H.H. Sheikh Sabah Al Ah­mad Al Sabah. The com­pany is also the largest sup­porter for INJAZ-Kuwait, as it en­cour­ages its em­ploy­ees to vol­un­teer reg­u­larly in INJAZ’s dif­fer­ent pro­grams. In ad­di­tion to be­ing a plat­inum spon­sor of “ArabNet Con­fer­ence” and pro­vid­ing free event tick­ets to 100 univer­sity students in Kuwait.
