Annual Report of AIESEC in Russia
Annual Report of AIESEC in Russia
Welcome, dear friend!
Our story is 30th in the history of AIESEC is Russia.
Every year we stop for a while, sum up the results and ask ourselves: where are we now? How did we come here and where to go next?

The main question we answered is how to make AIESEC loud and ambitious in Russia? How to become the voice of youth in Russia and an organization that is an example and the main platform for youth development?

Our focus was the development of strong leaders within the organization. Strong leadership is developing, when people have the freedom to realize their ideas, when they are not afraid to try and make mistakes, learn from their mistakes and realize their wildest dreams. When there are no restrictions. When each member significantly affects the development of the organization.
A lot of achievements happened during the year:

AIESEC in Russia is on the 5th place in Europe ranking
By the number of exchanges and growth rate

New record in internships
In amount of outgoing exchange (Global Volunteer product)

2 new events

30th Anniversary of AIESEC in Russia
Thanks to our alumni we were able to celebrate 30th Anniversary of AIESEC in Russia. It became a vivid memory for each member of the organization.

This year we have developed a new site It clearly explains the value of our three products for young people: Global Talent, Global Volunteer and Global Entrepreneur.
Our potential customers fill out a simple form on the website, their data is synchronized with our global platform — it allows candidates to immediately access our projects, and us - to contact them quickly. We became 4th country from 120 countries in AIESEC, where internal site is synchronized with the global platform.
The motto of our team is: «Everyone's doing the best that they can». It inspired us every day. Every day together with our local entities in 16 cities we did the best we could to bring AIESEC in Russia to the new level.

I believe we are on the right track. We are one step closer to realize our 2020 ambition.

Next year direction of AIESEC in Russia
This year has shown that thanks to the team work, we can quickly and strongly grow.
Now we face the question: "How to make the organization grow from year to year, while maintaining its relevance for young people?".
It is important for us to ensure the strategic development of the organization, which is why we started with the question: "What role should the organization play by 2030?".
For me and my team is very important to think in advance and follow the trends that are now shaping the world.
Ultimately, our main goal is to grow strong leaders who can manage positions in government and companies in 10 years.
It's important for leaders to look ahead and be able to understand what the world needs right now.
Diana Salahova,
President of AIESEC in Russia 2019-2020
Direction for 2019-2020 years:
To update the people development program in the organization
Make it more intense, faster, with relevant skills for the market in the future.
Also launch an internal system for members of the organization, where everyone can track their progress in the results and understand further opportunities.
To ensure qualitative of our customers
We want to automate the process of applying for an internship, focus on the preparation and provision of the experience itself.
