Fellow selected as a WEF 2018 Young Global Leader


2017 Tutu Fellow Natalie Jabangwe has been selected by the World Economic Forum as a 2018 Young Global Leader.  She joins one hundred of the world’s most promising artists, business leaders, public servants, technologists and social entrepreneurs in their community of Young Global Leaders. The honour goes beyond just being selected for a list.  Natalie joins both a community in a five-year programme that will challenge them to think beyond their scope of expertise and be more impactful leaders.

WEF says Young Global Leaders are nominated because of their ground-breaking work, creative approaches to problems and ability to build bridges across cultures and between business, government and civil society.

WEF says that this year’s class of Young Global Leaders "gives hope that they are ready to tackle the world’s most complex and pressing challenges".  Natalie is the Chief Executive Officer at EcoCash Zimbabwe, which is the second-largest mobile financial service in Africa, managing the operation and financial transactions for six million customers.

Natalie joins a number of other Tutu Fellows who have been selected by WEF for this honour.  Other Fellows include her classmate Abayomi Awobokun, Ada Osakwe, Victor Ochen, James Mworia, Zuki Siyotula, Juliana Rotich, and a Leadership For Change candidate, Angellah Kairuki.
