Mazars’ Sanae Lahlou selected among 2021 “Young Global Leaders” by World Economic Forum (WEF)

10 March 2021: Mazars, the international audit, tax and advisory firm, is pleased to announce that Sanae Lahlou, Africa Business Unit Director at Mazars in Morocco, has been selected among the 2021 “Young Global Leaders” (YGL) by the World Economic Forum (WEF). She joins an international and diverse community of leaders committed to shaping a better world in their respective action fields. Among these most promising global leaders are heads of government and senior officials, leaders of innovative and successful companies including “Fortune 500”, Nobel Prize winners, renowned activists and youth and social actors with global impact.

Each year, following an intense review process, the WEF identifies 100 exceptional and inspiring young leaders under the age of 40 working to improve the situation in the world. These profiles must have, each in their own way, innovated or contributed to positive transformations in their respective sector or community. The promise of the YGL is to accelerate the impact of a diverse network of committed young leaders, from various backgrounds and fields, in order to give them a unique opportunity to promote and build a more inclusive and sustainable world.

Sanae Lahlou will contribute to various YGL initiatives and participate in Davos meetings and other WEF forums.

"Joining this prestigious global community of young leaders is for me a great opportunity to amplify the impact of my commitment and actions supporting African SMEs scale-up” says Lahlou. “That means to contribute enhancing the significant potential of African companies to transform into continental champions, capable of positioning themselves in global value chains, and by doing so, to change the narrative on Africa".

Abdou Diop, Managing Partner of Mazars in Morocco comments: "It is an excellent opportunity for one of the young talents of the Mazars Group to participate in this world-renowned program. It is a source of pride for all of us and I can only congratulate Sanae. It is also a recognition that will push us to continue working on a daily basis to develop this environment conducive to the expression of individual qualities and the development of vocations which characterises Mazars. Sanae’s commitment, investment and achievements on the African continent are essential elements that contributed to her selection. "
