2022 Luxembourg Impact Report

"As youth, we do not act our age, we act our responsibility.” 
Seun Fakorede, a young Nigerian politician, winner of the Young Politician Award

From 5-8 September 2022, a delegation of 58 Deloitte professionals – including one from Luxembourg –10 OYW scholars and three Lead2030 challenge winners attended the OYW Summit. Each year, the Summit brings together young leaders from around the world for a once-in-a lifetime opportunity to be inspired to make a positive impact, develop leadership skills, and build their global networks.

This year’s Summit took place in Manchester, UK, and focused on five key issues: conflict prevention, gender equality, ocean conservation, ethical leadership, and global health. After the Summit, Deloitte’s OYW delegation committed to address complex global challenges and drive impact in their communities.

Michele Parmelee, Deloitte Global Deputy CEO and Chief People & Purpose Officer lead a presentation-stage session on the topic of preparing women and girls with the skills and knowledge for a thriving future. She joined prominent business, government, and humanitarian leaders to share her insights and encourage delegates to translate their Summit experience into action to create positive change.


"It is full of hope and determination that I leave Manchester. By being part of the Deloitte delegation, I measured the size and force of our global network. I heard from leading scientists, business leaders, artists, authors, activists and athletes, such as Meghan Markle, Paul Polman and Mary Robinson, on Conflict Prevention, Gender Equality, Oceans, Ethical Leadership, and Health.

Yet it was the young delegate speakers who inspired me most. Their stories came from both a place of injustice and profound humanity. They inspired me to further use my privileged position to take action around me. For instance, climate change is a topic close to my heart and I am happy to be able to speak knowledge and tips with my colleagues by facilitating Climate Collage workshops.”
