Deloitte and One Young World

Empowering young leaders to make a societal impact

As part of Deloitte’s WorldClass ambition to impact 50 million people, our partnership with One Young World (OYW) develops young professionals into future leaders who can solve the world’s toughest problems.

From 23-26 April 2021, a delegation of Deloitte professionals and selected OYW scholars will be attending the OYW Summit in Munich, Germany. The Summit will focus on five key issues: the climate crisis, rights and freedoms, education, conflict resolution and future economies.

The OYW Summit brings young leaders from around the world annually for a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to be inspired for positive change, develop leadership skills, and build their global networks. After the Summit, Deloitte’s OYW delegation will commit their inspiration and skills to address some of the world’s most complex global challenges through projects they deliver.

WorldClass and One Young World

Collaboration with OYW is part of Deloitte’s global WorldClass ambition to impact 50 million people through education, skills development, and access to opportunity.
