Misk Foundation has handed an award to Maven Insights in appreciation of its dedication to supporting and empowering youth in Saudi Arabia.

Launched a few years ago, the Misk Skills program aims to empower Saudi youth with the basic skills required to flourish in the job market.

Working together with private sector partners, including the likes of Microsoft, Nestle, L’Oréal and STC, the program provides young talent with valuable skills, opportunities to gain practical experience at organisations, and support up to permanent employment.

For youth aspiring a career in the consulting scene, Maven Insights is one the trusted partners of the Misk Skills program. The boutique management consultancy, which has an office in Riyadh alongside a hub in the UAE, provides training to prepare Saudi youth for the challenges of the modern workplace.

The consulting firm also offers traineeship positions to top performing talent, enriching their learning journey with real-world experience.

“Offering youth the opportunity to work on complex and strategic projects across our diverse client base enhances their competencies an helps them develop their interpersonal capacities,” said Khalid Alkhudairi, senior partner at Maven Insights.

Since the start of the collaboration, Maven Insights has groomed close to a dozen talents, with its commitment not going unnoticed – and now even recognised by Misk Foundation with an award.

Alkhudairi: “This recognition reflects our ongoing efforts to providing training opportunities within the company and the positive impact we are collectively achieving. We are incredibly grateful to the Misk Foundation for their collaborative efforts through creativity, nurturing and empowering talents, creating a healthy environment for their growth, and bringing them to light.”

Skills development

Initiated in 2011 by Mohammad bin Salman himself (then the Governor of Riyadh), Misk Foundation is aligned to the human capital pillar of Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s ambitious blueprint for empowerment and societal transformation.

Working together with leaders in industry such as Maven Insights extends the positive impact it provides to Saudi Arabia’s youth. For Maven Insights, the backdrop is similar, said Alkhudairi. “Working with Misk Foundation strengthens our commitment to corporate social responsibility and exemplifies our contribution to Vision 2030’ goals.”

“We look forward with great passion to our partnership with Misk Foundation in developing wonderful talents in the next generations of professionals,” Alkhudairi concluded.
