2019 is the 25th anniversary of our democracy and our election year. These 25 years have taught us that nation building is not easy. But this election year presents an opportunity to look to the future and to renew our efforts to create the South Africa we want.
500 Leaders is a way of doing this. It is a three-year campaign that targets 500 of our brightest and best emerging leaders in early to mid career, from across business, government, and the non-profit sector. In sectorally diverse groups of 50 participants at a time, the participants undergo leadership training to develop their skills as inclusive and agile leaders.
Future Leader Experience
The Future Leader Experience is a three-day programme for university students, that assists them to develop the skills required to understand and navigate diversity and complexity, as well as building the self-belief that they can be a leader. These programmes are commissioned by and run in-house at specific universities.
