What is Young ESOMAR Society?


Own it. Build it. Grow it.

The Young ESOMAR Society (YES!) is an initiative launched by ESOMAR in 2016 to encourage and inspire young professionals with the development of their interest and careers in the data, research and insights industry.

By identifying experience, knowledge, exposure and a growing network as the key steps needed for advancing one’s career, we’re keen to offer a platform and community where young professionals can share, learn, grow, and succeed. Through opportunities to speak or volunteer at ESOMAR events around the world, to getting published on Research World, to being part of a programme committee and reading all the submissions, to organizing local meetups, to using ESOMAR ANA for all your insights knowledge needs, we want every YES member to feel heard, supported and knowledgeable!

Regardless if you’re still a student, are just entering the workforce, or are looking for ways to advance or change your career path, we welcome you to be a part of the Young ESOMAR Society.

Your society. Your platform. Your opportunity to make a mark.
