Candidates announced for 2016 Tutu Leadership Programme

AFLI is pleased to announce the 24 candidates selected for the 2016 Tutu Leadership Fellowship Programme, including the 5 candidates nominated by our sponsoring organisations – AGCO, Centum Investments, GSK, Investec and Rio Tinto – without whose generous support this incredible programme would not exist. There were 305 top-quality nominations from 32 countries for a slot in this prestigious programme, and inevitably there will be many disappointed, excellent candidates.
