2018 Fellow named a Young Global Leader by WEF


2018 Tutu Fellow Adebola Williams has been named a 2019 Young Global Leader by the World Economic Forum. Adebola, who is the founder of RED Media, was selected from thousands of applications from across the world following a rigorous vetting process designed to identify global leaders and young visionaries working to shape the future through inspired leadership.

Created in 2004 by Klaus Schwab, the founder and executive chairman of the World Economic Forum, as a way to help the world meet increasingly complex and interdependent challenges, Adebola Williams will join an elite community of the world’s next-generation leaders in influencing decision-making through the contribution of new ideas, perspectives and energy.

Adebola joins this year’s 10 African selections, including: Kirsty Coventry, Kamissa Camara, Bogolo Kenewendo and David Sengeh. Past Young Global Leaders include former UK Prime Minister, David Cameron; co-founder and chief executive officer of Google, Larry Page; Facebook founder, Mark Zuckerberg; co-founder and executive chairman of the Alibaba Group, Jack Ma; and others.

He joins the ranks of other Tutu Fellows who have been honoured as Young Global Leaders: James Mworia, Zukie Siyotula, Juliana Rotich, Victor Ochen, Funmi Iyanda, Jacqueline Muna Musiitwa, and Ada Osakwe.
