Etihad Airways has flown 80 young Muslim leaders to the United Kingdom to take part in the 2010 Mosaic International Summit which aims to grow their leadership skills, for use in their careers and communities. The delegates will fly with Etihad from Bangladesh, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Oman, Afghanistan, Iraq and Bahrain. They will spend the next two weeks in a varied program including leadership workshops, and activities to inspire positive thinking to tackle global social and economic issues. Three Etihad Airways employees will also participate in the Mosaic International Summit. The delegates, members of Etihad’s Emiratisation program, are Aisha Al Ameer, Shaeb Alnajjar and Najla Al Nahdi. James Hogan, Etihad Airways’ Chief Executive, said: “We are proud that these young Muslim men and women are flying with Etihad from all corners of the globe to the Mosaic International Summit in the UK. “The delegates, all talented individuals in their chosen professions, will benefit hugely from their time and experiences with Mosaic and Etihad is delighted to continue our partnership with the organisation and the excellent work it does.” Founded by HRH The Prince of Wales, Mosaic has two key priorities which are to create opportunities for young people of all backgrounds who do not have them; and to create opportunity for understanding between different people and groups. John O’Brien, Mosaic Managing Director, said: “We are very grateful for Etihad’s support with the Mosaic International Summit and the part the airline plays in bringing together these young Muslim men and women from around the world.” The first week of the Summit will take place at the University of Cambridge. The second week will see delegates disperse on regional tours of the UK, reconvening in London for the final three days. Here they will reflect on what they have learned, plan their next steps for their return home, and present their learning in a reception with HRH Princess Badiya bint El Hassan of Jordan, the Chair of Mosaic.
