In the US, we hosted our first “Teach Africa” workshops, and in London we held a conversation about leadership in Africa at Regents University, in which moderator Lanre Akinola (Editor of African Business) led a spirited conversation about the continent with former Ecobank CEO Arnold Ekpe, CDC Chairman Graham Wrigley, and ALA graduate Aida Ndiaye (recently graduated from Oxford, and now on the Africa Policy team at Facebook).
