The ALI Africa Impact Forum

About the Forum

Modelled on the Resnick Aspen Action Forum but designed specifically for the African context, the ALI Africa Impact Forum was initiated by the leadership of the Africa Leadership Initiative. This event brings together Fellows from ALI South Africa, ALI West Africa, ALI East Africa, ALI Mozambique, ALI Media, and the Young Africa Leadership Initiative (YALI).

The ALI Africa Impact Forum aims to provide these Fellows with a platform to deeply connect and engage on matters of significance to the whole continent. In so doing, deepening the pool of influential, effective and ethical leaders across Africa who assume personal and collective accountability for the “Good Society”.

This event will offer participants a chance to retreat from their busy schedules and refresh their perspectives on their work and lives as well as make a meaningful contribution to building a better African society. Participants will be inspired by the Impact Forum’s seminars, workshops and topical dialogues to detail specific ways they can individually and collectively create positive change in their communities.

The objectives of the event are to:

  • Strengthen the existing regional networks of the Africa Leadership Initiative into an Africa wide group of ethical and public-minded leaders committed to the common good.
  • Foreground the African Leadership Agenda. In these turbulent global times, how do we lead from the front and ensure we are proactive and not reactive in setting the Africa Agenda.
  • Identify opportunities and commit to individual and where feasible, collective action to improve the well-being of all Africans.
  • Create a common vision around values-based leadership.
  • Be inspired and continue to learn and grow.

It is the intention that the ALI Africa Impact Forum becomes a biennial event that will be held in alternated venues across Africa. The inaugural event will be held at the Spier Wine Farm in Stellenbosch, Cape Town. This event will commence on the evening of Thursday the 1st of March and end on the afternoon of Sunday the 4th of March 2018.

The ALI Africa Impact Forum program includes inspiring readings-based seminar dialogues, roundtable dialogues on leadership, intensive networking opportunities and more. Given your active role and influence within the Aspen network, your participation at this four-day seminar would be extremely valuable to all.
