Arzu Tekir Selected as a Young Society Leader by American Turkish Society

The American Turkish Society is pleased to announce the eighth class of "Young Society Leaders," a group of 11 accomplished professionals with a demonstrated record of leadership ability and commitment to serve the U.S.-Turkish community at large.

Launched by The American Turkish Society in 2011, Young Society Leaders (YSL) is a program that convenes a select, diverse group of the American-Turkish community’s most outstanding young leaders, in their 30s and 40s. Accomplished in their fields of business, law, medicine, journalism, academia, and the arts, these dedicated individuals are committed to an improved future of U.S.-Turkish business, diplomatic, and cultural ties.

Specifically, the YSL program has three main objectives:

  • To build a diverse community of peers by engaging Young Society Leaders into networks and processes that would build the standing of the American-Turkish community (comprised of individuals based in Turkey and in the United States, Turkish-Americans, and Americans affiliated with Turkey).
  • To nurture and support the next generation of leaders for The American Turkish Society and the community at large through personal experiences and mentorships that build knowledge and engender a better understanding of the global, regional, and industry agendas.
  • To positively impact issues that matter to the American-Turkish community by engaging Young Global Leaders in task-forces related to specific challenges they have identified collectively.
