The Oil Sector Celebrates The Youth
International Youth Day, which is celebrated on August 12 of every year, was the occasion for the biggest virtual gathering in Kuwait’s oil sector. The event was attended by Kuwait Petroleum Corporation CEO Mr. Hashem Hashem, oil executives and group of young Kuwaiti people from KPC and its subsidiaries. The mission of the event is to create a stimulating working environment for young people and to prepare them to be future leaders in ways that complement the belief in youth’s ability to lead.
This major event comes as a result of Diversity and Inclusion Council, which was launched by KPC on December 16, 2020 to support the culture of diversity, empower women, encourage the participation of youth and develop their skills. The meeting included many discussions and counseling sessions with a number of prominent executives in the oil industry to help youth face challenges, overcome obstacles, and learn from successful experiences.
