Subject matter expert delivers a presentation during one of ExxonMobil Qatar’s  national education development initiatives.

 

ExxonMobil Qatar has honoured a number of graduate, internship, and sponsored students for high academic achievement during a luncheon for more than 40 female students from various local universities last week.
The students and honorees came from higher learning institutions like Qatar University, Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar, Georgetown University School of Foreign Service in Qatar, and Community College of Qatar.
During the luncheon, ExxonMobil Qatar Human Resources adviser Noora al-Qahtani delivered the welcome remarks and highlighted the company’s programmes that support national education development initiatives.
Al Anoud Darwish, chief development officer for Teach for Qatar, one of ExxonMobil Qatar’s key national education partners, also delivered a presentation about the organisation’s education activities.
Every year, ExxonMobil Qatar provides internship and sponsorship opportunities to students from local universities. The programmes help Qatar’s youth gain a better understanding of how the country’s natural resources are developed, given the importance the industry plays in the economy and efforts to achieve the Qatar National Vision 2030.
“Driving human potential in support of a sustainable economy is a priority for ExxonMobil, and this is why we support educational programmes worldwide. We put significant focus on science, technology, engineering and math skills, or STEM skills, because we believe they are the fundamental building blocks of individual opportunity and sustainable economic growth, and they are critical to ensuring today’s students are prepared for the jobs of the 21st century,” said Abdullatif al-Naemi, national development manager at ExxonMobil Qatar.
He added: “We support the personal and professional development of the students we sponsor, and also foster an interest among them for careers in science and engineering or the energy sector. Today’s group of students is a source of pride for us, and I have no doubt that they will experience a great deal of success in whatever careers they decide to pursue.”
ExxonMobil is contributing to the Qatar National Vision 2030 by providing the energy that drives human potential, in support of a skilled and productive workforce with strong STEM skills that can sustain Qatar’s future and meet the highly competitive environment of global business.
