Takreem America to celebrate Arab US success at awards gala

LOS ANGELES: The success stories of Arab Americans throughout the US will on Saturday be celebrated at a Los Angeles gala evening hosted by Takreem America.

It is the US-arm of Takreem, an organization that aims to rectify the Arab world’s image and its misconceptions by highlighting Arab accomplishments all around the world.

The awards recognize the journeys of Arab individuals and institutions who have found ways to give back to the community through the categories of young entrepreneurship, corporate leadership, cultural excellence, scientific and technological achievement, and environmental development and sustainability.

Former laureates include Lebanese British clean-energy entrepreneur Assaad Razzouk, Edwards Lifesciences Foundation Chairman Michael Mussallem, Syrian American entrepreneur Peter Rahal, and Cherien Dabis, a Palestinian American film and television director.

The awards ceremony will be followed by the TAKminds Forum, an open meeting bringing together Arab minds to brainstorm ideas on building a brighter future for youth.

The forum will include panel discussions, interactive sessions, screenings, and other events and activities, all designed to explore key questions raised and increase dialogue between the diaspora and beyond.
