Youri Tabet has significant experience advancing the social impact of corporations, governments, and foundations in a wide range of areas, including workforce development, just energy transition, women’s economic empowerment, social protection, and health. He brings experience designing and implementing participatory approaches and broad coalitions. Youri has lived in the United States, France, and Argentina. As an associate director at FSG, he leverages his expertise to bring new insights and ideas to clients, helping them to reimagine their approach to social change.
As a project director and deputy head of unit at the French Department of Labor, Youri managed relationships with unions and employers’ associations and oversaw projects to strengthen social dialogue. At the Treasury Department, he coordinated the design of an action plan to foster women’s economic empowerment that turned into law. There, he contributed to designing workforce development programs, including the job retention scheme in response to the Covid pandemic.
Youri also brings experience working with mission-driven companies. For instance, he designed the strategy, governance, and programs of a leading health insurance company’s corporate foundation based on a participatory process. He drafted a comprehensive white paper about the social protection of the company’s target clients.
Youri progressively incorporated climate and energy-related issues into his social impact approach. He created and facilitated a workshop for board members of a significant insurance company that focused on the social impact of the energy transition on the company’s strategy. He also co-created and taught a master’s degree course at Sciences Po Paris about how organizations may design and manage just transition strategies.

On Working at FSG
Convinced that advancing equity requires structural changes, I feel honored to be part of an organization at the forefront of social change that brings together social impact leaders with diverse backgrounds. I am also impressed by FSG’s ability to continuously reinterrogate its internal practices to advance equity and create more social value for its clients.
