Selection Process

Leadership for Change Fellows are emerging leaders who, by their actions and achievements, have demonstrated their potential to be future leaders in their sector and their region of Africa. Whether working in government, the private sector or civil society, these individuals demonstrate integrity, reinforced by strong values and principles. Importantly, participants need to be committed to living in Africa and contributing to its long-term success.

The Leadership for Change Programme is highly selective with approximately 25 candidates selected for each regional programme per year. Participants are invited following a rigorous nomination and selection process to identify the region’s high potential emerging leaders. The selection process will be governed by strict guidelines to ensure the highest quality of participants.
