Largest professional social network on the globe, LinkedIn, alongside the multilateral development bank based in Saudi Arabia, the Islamic Development Bank, have recently signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for an upcoming partnership to create a "career advice program" to give the coming era of youth and new workers the tools to succeed.
With an initial one-year term, the MoU will further augment IsDB’s efforts in achieving its foundational mission to promote human development by alleviating poverty, promoting education and improving the health and prosperity of underdeveloped communities through Engage, the bank’s innovation platform closely aligned with the UN sustainable development goals (SDGs). Under the agreement, LinkedIn will offer mentorship and training, along with access to on-demand learning content, to the 30 identified winners of the Career Advice Program.
Dr. Hayat Sindi, chief scientific adviser to the president of the Islamic Development Bank, said: “IsDB’s Career Advice Program aims to identify, mentor and encourage the future leaders of the developing world to accelerate the pace of growth within their communities. We believe LinkedIn is the ideal partner to add further value and enhance the impact of the initiative.”
