The African Leadership Institute has partnered with the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation to produce a series of profiles on Tutu Fellows called Tutu Talks. The foundation is responsible for preserving the example set by Archbishop Desmond Tutu for the future.
The first of our 2021 Tutu Talks series features 2017 Tutu Fellow, Samantha Mkandhla, the head of philanthropy and partnerships for Médecins Sans Frontières Southern Africa. In it, she tells of the personal cost of servant leadership, and how she learned to overcome it and still work to make the world a better place. Her talk is called The Power of Duality: Success and Failure. In it, she spoke about how her failures led her to a clearer sense of what she had gained and how much more she had to give.
Through the Tutu Talks 2021: Showcasing Moral and Ethical Leadership series, AFLI and the Desmond & Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation hope to reframe unresolved issues within civil society and uncover what moral and ethical leadership entails. The intention is to not only spread ideas, but also to empower young African leaders.
