SLP students take part in Youth Circle

May 11, 2017

Twelve students from the Student Leadership Program, Office of Student Affairs, participated in the Youth Circle held on May 9, 2017, at Zabeel Hall, Dubai World Trade Center.

The Youth Circle was hosted by The Mohammed bin Rashid School of Government (MBRSG), in collaboration with the Emirates Youth Council, and drew the participation of 150 young Emiratis.

Under the theme “Empowering Emirati Youth in the Private Sector,” the event addressed the current numbers of young UAE national graduates joining the workforce in the private sector. The Youth Circle highlighted the importance of Emiratization with a focus on the fields and industries that need it most and offered insights into the importance of young Emiratis in the private sector.

“I learned about the benefits of working for the private sector and how I can develop myself by working with diverse cultures. Moreover, this encouraged me to think of how to grow and show other cultures that Emirati nationals are capable and have the skills to become great leaders in the private sector,” said Huda AlMusharrekh, a senior mass communication major.

“We always encourage our students to take part in these discussion platforms to express their opinions and exchange views with experts and peers. Learning about the private sector is necessary for students so they can explore various hiring opportunities available in the market and decide what they want to do next after graduation,” said Dr. Moza Al Shehhi, Dean of Students.
