YIC inks MoU with Iqra university for leadership summit

Youth International Conclave’s President Engineer Umar Farooq Gul signed an MOU with the Iqra University Peshawar Vice-Chancellor Dr ShahJehan Khan for the YIC Leadership and Entrepreneurship Summit 2021.

The on-venue conference in Peshawar is part of ongoing initiatives by YIC. The partnership with the esteemed institution is to create awareness about the summit and providing opportunities to youth.

Youth International Conclave is organizing another Summit with the title of YIC Leadership & Entrepreneurship Summit that is focused on 4 main things; Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Technology & Innovation, & Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

As per YIC, the Conference will provide a framework for entrepreneurs aiming towards SDG leadership. The 2030 Agenda need entrepreneurs of all ages and from all regions to contribute. Building on an assessment of the qualities of current and past leadership action on the SDGs, the Conference presents a framework for the next generation of business leadership. The intention is to foster contribution to the SDGs at scale.

The 10 Principles of the UN Global Compact can propagate entrepreneur leadership on the SDGs. The Ten Principles and their four pillars of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption are vital set of business values that strongly align with the SDGs. Leadership on the SDGs requires embracing these values and translating them into renewed actions and targets that maximize contributions towards achieving the SDGs. Entrepreneurs can harness opportunities worth many trillions by embracing the 2030 Agenda.

Youth International Conclave recognizes the need for collaboration with stakeholders. There is a limit to what business can achieve alone. Realizing the SDGs relies on action not just by business, but also by all actors including investors, civil society, and policymakers. In some areas, non-business actors, especially governments, will need to take a lead. This means that responsible companies understand that strong partnerships with all stakeholders are essential for a strong and renewed social contract.
