Stories Africa is a community for sharing stories that are enriching our continent and improving lives. Our aim is both to inspire Africans and shape a positive African narrative globally.
Many of the constraints Africa faces are related to leadership. To realise our continent’s huge potential and generate inclusive growth, we need values-based leadership - characterised by the main tenets of African humanism, namely compassion, connectedness, integrity and humility - at all levels of our society.
Stories Africa provides a platform for sharing stories of inspiration and values-based leadership from across our continent. By doing so we hope to redefine what we expect from our leaders and ourselves. Our goal is a bold one - to inspire values-based leadership, change the prevailing narrative and perceptions of our continent globally.
Stories Africa is a partnership between the Leadership & Values Initiative (LEVI) of the World Economic Forum Africa Regional Strategy Group and Africa Practice. Stories Africa works through open partnerships and collaborations with a range of organisations to create and curate stories that profile good leadership across science, technology, health, industry, the arts and the public sector.
If you are a story-teller, committed to changing the prevailing African narrative, then please get in touch with us. If you are a University, a Media organisation, an NGO or a Think Tank, then please consider joining as a Content Partner. We offer you a unique opportunity to showcase the work you are doing, share your ideas and engage with our community of industry and media leaders. If you work for a company or in public service, then our community offers you a safe space to debate and challenge questions of leadership and governance on our continent. Please get in touch!
