World Economic Forum Young Global Leaders: Leading for Transformation, December 4th to December 7th , 2016 (South Africa)

Caroline, together with 30 Young Global Leaders (YGLs) from around the world met in Johannesburg for a special education module organised by the WITS Business School (WBS). Under the theme ‘Leading for Transformation’, the module introduced 30 dynamic YGLs to the concept of leadership in the African political and economic context.  It also aims to offer YGLs an intense, immersive personal development experience with regard to African societal and leadership opportunities, and practical networks for developing links between African and Rest-of-World leadership projects.

The young leaders began their tour with a visit to the Cradle of Humankind followed by a welcome dinner hosted by Wits Vice-chancellor Professor Adam Habib at his official residence, Savernake. The group also visited Johannesburg’s Maboneng District, the Origins Centre and the Tshimologong Innovation Hub at WITS University, and the Kliptown Youth Programme (KYP).  The full programme of the event can be viewed here.
