ALI - Media South Africa


The Africa Leadership Initiative(ALI) has developed an innovative Media Fellowship programme for distinguished professionals from Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa who have the ability – through their positions of leadership – to influence and enhance the future of financial journalism in Africa and beyond. The ALI Media Fellowship brings together outstanding leaders in the media, government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) sectors from three of Africa’s leading economies. The ALI Media Fellows will help set the standard for in-depth analysis and coverage of business and economic growth, through fostering a more informed citizenry promoting increased financial investment and better governance on the continent. Another facet of the ALI Media Fellowship is its emphasis on the role of values-based leadership in achieving more sustainable and inclusive African development. The ALI Media Fellowship will combine ALI’s innovative approach to leadership development, created in partnership with the Aspen Institute, with key learnings from financial journalism. Each class will consist of 24 ALI Media Fellows chosen from a wide pool of candidates from the media, civil society and government, in the three countries.
