Delegates from the Pakistan, Africa, East Asia and the Middle East will spend 10 days in an exciting leadership development program, which includes world class speakers, leadership workshops and an opportunity to become members of a vibrant international network of young leaders committed to positive change.

Etihad Airways employees will be among those invited to apply for the opportunity to represent the United Arab Emirates at the summit which is being held for the first time in the Middle East.

James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive Officer, said: “We are extremely proud to support these young men and women who are travelling from across the globe to be part of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The knowledge and experience each of these talented individuals will gain during their journey with Mosaic will greatly benefit their companies and communities and we are delighted to be a part of it.”

Etihad has a long-standing relationship with Mosaic, and has, over the last three years, sponsored numerous initiatives, including the Mosaic International Summer School and the Mosaic International Awards.

In addition to providing opportunities for delegates to develop leadership skills, the Summit offers a multi-cultural perspective of key global issues and works with students to address these in positive and creative ways.

A critical stage of the leadership program follows the Summit, when participants are supported in their leadership journey by Mosaic. Participants report back on their development and community work every three months for a year following the Summit and take an active part in Mosaic’s international network.
