Report Event - An Abundance of Young African Leaders, but No Seat at the Table

ReportCoverThe African Leadership Institute has launched its seminal report: An Abundance of Young African Leaders, but No Seat at the Table at Strathmore University in Nairobi on 28 August, 2018.  The report is the result of grant funding from the Ford Foundation with AFLI as the grantee and Strathmore University as its partner. 

For Africa to reach its potential, it must harness the potential of young leaders.  African organisations fostering leadership that focus on the targeted development and the continuous nurturing of young people‚Äôs leadership capacities are crucial. Whilst a plethora of leadership development offerings exist on the continent, there has not been, to date, a holistic view of what these initiatives are. This study, therefore, represents an important step towards filling gaps in extant knowledge.

A total of 105 leadership initiatives focusing on young African leaders (18-40 year olds) and meeting other specified criteria were included in this study. The report about the research can be downloaded as a PDF here, from the AFLI website. A PDF of the study data is also available for download as a PDF.  For attendees to the event, the report was presented by AFLI CEO Dr Jackie Chimhanzi and discussed by a strong panel:
