At the 2014 Summit, 35 students from across New York University's portal campuses and global sites had a unique opportunity to learn, share, network and build community around the theme of “Leadership across Boundaries.” Activities included workshops, panels with faculty members, featured speakers, and a community service project.
The Summit included a public event on next generation leadership on January 25, 2014. Offered in collaboration with the NYU Abu Dhabi Institute, the high-level panel explored how young people from around the world are leading across boundaries today. Panelists included Noura Alturki, Human Resources and Corporate Social Responsibility Executive Manager at Nesma Holding, a Saudi Arabian company with a cross-sector portfolio; Butheina Kazim (NYU ’13), Fulbright Scholar of Media, Culture and Communication at NYU; and David Moinina Sengeh, President and co-founder of Global Minimum, Inc., a nonprofit that promotes locally generated solutions to local issues. Kate Otto (CAS ’08, Wagner ’09), founder of the nonprofit Everyday Ambassador and author of a book by the same name, moderated the discussion.
The Summit was sponsored by NYU Abu Dhabi and organized in partnership with the Student Life in the GNU Committee, the NYU Leadership Initiative, and the Division of Student Affairs.
