The African Leadership Institute is delighted to announce the appointment of Judy Malan as Programme Director for the Archbishop Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme with effect from 1st March 2021.

Judy is well known to the Tutu Fellows community, having been a Fellow of the inaugural Tutu Programme in 2006 along with our past Chairman, Ronnie Ntuli and past Board Member, Aidan Eyakuze. It is truly heart-warming that members of that very first cadre of Tutu Fellows are still engaged and committed to continue our mission to build a network of high-potential values-based leaders across the continent who are committed to making Africa a better place for all to live in.

Judy has had an outstanding career, and her skills are highly sought after globally, so we are excited and privileged to be able to call upon her expertise and drive to take AFLI and the Tutu Fellowship Programme to the next level. She runs her own leadership advisory and executive coaching practice, which she will continue to do, whilst taking on the Programme Director responsibilities in a part-time capacity.

Judy’s experience in leadership consulting is well-aligned to her role at AFLI. Her consulting work is with senior teams at large institutions and systems, helping them to align their strategic intent and improve the effectiveness of the way in which they collaborate, lead and engage their eco-system towards its realization. She also supports C-suite leaders as an executive coach. One of her focus areas is enabling groups to collaborate effectively where conflicting worldviews co-exist, such as in multi-cultural settings and public-private-social sector partnerships. Enabling groups to have generative dialogues in conditions of complexity and uncertainty is another.

Prior to going out on her own, Judy was a Partner in McKinsey & Company, spending 14 years in the Johannesburg office, where her focus was on systemic transformation, organisational behaviour and leadership. She holds a law degree from Stellenbosch University followed by a Master of Law degree from Oxford University.

As a Co-Founder of the Institute, I have directed the Tutu Fellowship Programme for the past 15 years. I am now ready to hand over the baton, and I am delighted we will have someone with Judy’s extensive expertise and experience in leadership, but also her intimate knowledge of the programme and its culture, to take it to the next level. After 15 successful years, the programme needs a fresh pair of eyes to make sure it remains relevant and successful, refreshing its design whilst retaining the core of what has made it a success. We will work together on the 2021 programme as part of the transition plan.
