Initiatives and Communities
World Economic Forum
The World Economic Forum sponsors a variety of initiatives and communities that identify and advance distinctive global issues relevant to their constituents. The result of these collaborations is greater understanding, tangible support, direction, and solutions that shape global, regional, and industry agendas.
Young Global Leaders (YGL)
Each year the World Economic Forum identifies 200-300 extraordinary individuals, drawn from every region of the world. A Young Global Leader must be under 40 years of age, have a recognized record of extraordinary achievement, be in a leadership position and have a track record in public service oriented activities or have shown a commitment to enhancing the public good/commitment to serve society. Deloitte is currently represented by:
