Begüm Doğan Faralyalı / Doğan Holding - Chairwoman

As the world evolves rapidly with the Industry 4.0 revolution, automation, artificial intelligence and digital technologies, the dynamics of the business world are also significantly impacted. We are now in an era when employees are required to have diverse skills. Work experience was always an important criterion but today they need to gain experience more quickly and in a much shorter period of time. And something as important as work experience is to adopt an informed, conscious and responsible approach to the future of the world and humanity. First Chance is a very creative program that addresses both of these two important aspects while offering advantages to businesses and young university graduates. With the program, these young people find the opportunity to develop their 21st century skills as they gain a unique experience while working for NGOs that address various social issues. I believe that multidimensional young people who are aware that culture and values are as important as being well-equipped will be of much more benefit to society.
