2021 GLOBAL LEADERSHIP AFRICA SUMMIT THEME


Together Forward: Reshaping our narrative and improving our well being.

The Global Leadership Africa Summit is more than a conference — it brings together a diverse community of global young professionals, entrepreneurs, and game-changers. This year we are offering a hybrid version, giving the attendees the opportunity to attend online + in-person. The Summit will offer lively conversations and generate rich networking opportunities while providing learning opportunities in leadership, entrepreneurship, money management, health, and cultural diversity.

Leadership Africa Summit highlights


Experience some the memorable moments from our past gatherings. Over 800 participants from diverse professional and cultural backgrounds came from more than 15 cites to get inspired, connect, and learn.

2018


The COVID-19 pandemic has shifted the way we gather. As a result, we saw the need to offer a hybrid gathering and allow participants to join in-person or online. It creates a great opportunity to access and connect with diverse professionals in the global community.

We promise a speaker lineup of thought leaders and doers with powerful stories and teachings that inspire and inform. Stay tuned!

Our Impact

I was honored to be asked to speak at such a fascinating event. The Leadership Africa Summit demonstrated inspirational content, quality education and inclusive fellowship. The Summit was so impactful that I took away more than I contributed.

— Sailu Timbo, Vice President, Community and Diversity Relations at Hy-Vee, Inc.


The Leadership Africa Summit is a critical platform in reshaping Africa's narrative, particularly in the West. The conference provides a unique opportunity to learn, network, and connect with members of the diaspora with a shared interest in Africa.

— Sandra Appiah, CEO of Face2Face Africa, New York City, NY

The Leadership Africa Summit was one of the most significant events for Omaha in 2019. The diversity and inclusion - through programming, speakers, and logistics - was well planned and implemented. The national and international speakers brought an inspiring and global perspective. The Summit is a must-attend event for 2020!
