KPMG’s Emirati Youth Council

KPMG Lower Gulf places great importance on the role of the youth in bringing about a better tomorrow. While the UAE enjoys a reputation of being a young nation, its great innovation and future focused vision has led its youth population to strive for excellence.

In 2022, we registered our first Emirati Youth Council with the UAE Federal Youth Authority to create a space for Emirati youth to participate in top-level KPMG management conversations. The purpose of the council is to:

  • Events Collaboration: Driving impactful connections, internally and externally.
  • Development and Empowerment: Enabling the youth through guidance for a thriving journey.
  • Youth Voice & Happiness: Advocating for peers, understanding challenges and offering innovative solutions.
  • Cultural Enrichment & Awareness: Promoting cultural immersion and fostering inclusive cross-cultural connections for the firm.

As the chair of our Emirati Youth Council, I'm proud of our nation's young generation driving innovation and excellence. At KPMG, we actively engage in shaping the future, by representing Emirati youth and providing valuable insights to enhance the firm's Emiratization agenda and trust and growth ambitions.
