The largest youth-led organisation in the world is recruiting part-time board members!
Your personal leadership journey
In AIESEC you will be provided with opportunities to step out of your comfort zone. The overarching mentality is to challenge yourself and to take responsibility for tasks, we might not necessarily know how to handle yet. Real development only happens outside of your comfort zone. That sort of growth-mindset is what we want to foster for your personal leadership journey. This will eventually define and make you understand your impact on yourself and the people around you.
Empowerment equals leadership within AIESEC. By taking the step to value empowerment and you learn what leadership means to you, what is the cause you are passionate about and what value belong to that. This is not something you can learn from a book – you learn it by doing! Value-driven leadership is at the core of AIESEC’s organizational structure and practices.
Open-mindedness and connection
We believe a fundamental aspect of developing yourself, both personally and professionally, is that you don’t do this alone. We try to learn from each other via coaching, giving feedback and empowering others to step outside their comfort zone. By striving for increased diversity, we provide our members a diverse work environment, where we learn from and connect with each other. To ensure our environment is inclusive, open-mindedness is key for AIESEC.
