The regional organizations – ALI-East Africa, ALI- Mozambique, ALI-South Africa, and ALI-West Africa – are increasingly articulating the need for a wide-ranging Pan-African perspective on common issues facing the continent, coalescing around a biannual gathering, the Africa Impact Forum (AIF). The AIF brings together ALI fellows from across the continent and around the world, seeking to reconnect within an inclusive and supportive environment. The AIF is designed to strengthen the network across the continent and explore areas where fellows can collaborate and act together.Theme overview:
The first AIF (themed ‘The Great African Reset’) was hosted in Cape Town in 2018.
The second (‘Building to Last’) took place in Accra, Ghana in February 2020.
The third edition (‘Adaptive Leadership in Uncertain Times’) was hosted by ALI East Africa in Kigali, Rwanda in May 2023.
The next AIF is set to be hosted in South Africa in 2025.

The Africa Leadership Initiative (ALI), was born out of a realization that the best hope for Africa’s future lies in the investment in effective and enlightened leaders.
