Graduates of the “Responsible Leadership-22” seminar jointly organized “Talent Hub” for students of 10-11th grades

Aspen seminars bring together leaders from various fields. By exchanging unique experiences, they expand their horizons and explore their values, which are the basis of making everyday decisions.

In addition, the Aspen experience promotes the formation of horizontal connections between leaders. During the seminars, the participants often have ideas that later develop into change-making initiatives. Such projects vividly manifest responsible leadership because they aim to build a good society in Ukraine.

Recently, a 5-day “Talent Hub” was held to help students of grades 10-11 decide on their future activities. The initiators of the event were the graduates of the “Responsible Leadership-22” seminar:

  • Olga Magaletska, head of the Office of the National Investment Council.
  • Oleh Yaskiv, director of the information and cultural center named after Metropolitan Andrey Sheptytsky of the Ukrainian Catholic University.
  • Olga Aivazovska, head of the Board of the OPORA Civil Network.
  • Anatoly Yeskarev, owner and founder of the architectural and design company DEKART STUDIO.
  • Volodymyr Tsoi, president and co-owner of MTI Group.
  • Serhiy Zhyla, general director of the investment and management company Askania Group.
  • Oleksii Bashkirtsev, chief physician, medical director of Edem Resort.
  • Dmytro Sologub, Senior Financial Sector Expert at the International Monetary Fund.

The event brought together 24 students of 10-11 grades from all over Ukraine. The “Talent Hub” participants had a unique opportunity to meet and communicate with successful leaders of various fields. Among them are Aspen Institute Kyiv seminar graduates Olga Balytska, Maryna Dyachenko, Oleksandr Novikov, and Viktor Yatsyk. Valuable experience and examples will help determine what teenagers aspire to in the future.

The Aspen Institute Kyiv team is sincerely glad that the initiative that arose during the seminar was continued and will inspire other leaders!
