GPCA Leaders of Tomorrow
Leaders of Tomorrow is an initiative launched by GPCA and supported by its members and aims at building the local human capital in the region. The initiative falls under one of the three pillars of the association which is advocacy by promoting STEM and bridging the gap between academia and the industry. Leaders of Tomorrow is considered as the first official collective step where industry stakeholders collaborate in shaping skills and preparing the future industry leaders with the required skills set.
The initiative will consist of a year round program where GPCA member companies will be sponsoring students to attend the GPCA yearly conferences. Each conference will cater to the participating students by encompassing an element of the initiative in the form of a seminar, workshop, roundtable and site visit. The main goals of these activities are to provide the students opportunities to learn more about industry trends and will give an overview of the skill set that are required to face new challenges. It will also support member companies with the local talent acquisition process.
