An invitation has gone out to young people of African descent in Germany to participate in the Lead Africa International Academy 2021 via Zoom on 22-24 November. The event is organised by Lead Africa International e.V., a Germany-based global non-governmental organisation dealing with development issues.
The Lead Africa International Academy is a three-day capacity development program for Africans and people of African descent. Through the Academy, conversations are initiated with a close group of young, resourceful minds.
The three-day virtual event precedes the Global Partnership for African Development (G-PAD) 2021 Forum.
Slots are only available to 30 participants, who would be selected from across categories for equal opportunity and representation. The 30 selected participants would also receive a daily stipend of €40.
The Lead Academy 2021 initiative pursues two distinct but inter-twined goals. First, it aims at charting a new course of thinking among the focus group of the 2021 Academy on the maintenance of economic relevance and capacity development in a (post) Covid environment.
It also seeks to provide a counter-narrative to the body of knowledge that have, unfortunately but dominantly, framed the imagination of the black body in Europe.
MODULES COVERED INCLUDE:
- Personal leadership – Identity and personal drive // Structured personal growth // Character and values
Organisational leadership – Clarity of vision, goals and mission // Clear results, metrics and performance drivers // Attracting, retaining and developing talents
- Leadership lessons from Africa and its allies – Ubuntu – African leadership lessons // The reality of leading in Africa and the challenges of the continent // Lessons from allies – Germany and EU
Upon successful completion of the program, participants will be issued certificates and they become alumni of the Lead Academy.
