WASHINGTON, DC, September 22, 2017 – LDI Africa is proud to partner with TechnoServe and the Association of Professional Schools for International Affairs (APSIA) for the annual Talent Africa Series in Washington, DC on October 11, 2017, 6pm EST.

LDI Africa is also excited to announce the additional partnership and support of the Congressional African Staff Association (CASA) and the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs for this series and future projects.

As global interconnectedness continues to accelerate at an ever far-reaching pace, there is a need for the next generation of leaders to expand their professional development opportunities beyond their own borders. “As we work to define a new era of US and Africa engagement, LDI Africa is excited to lead the way by connecting talented professionals looking to expand their international experience in a meaningful way to the leading African profit and nonprofit organizations in need of crucial human capital in order to expand impact ” says founder Gbenga Ogunjimi.

The event will be held at the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs, 1957 E St. NW, Room B12, starting at 6pm EST. The program includes a panel discussion on international leadership and service, specifically in Africa, networking opportunities to meet global experts and young professionals, and a chance to learn about current work and international service opportunities with leading African profit and nonprofit organizations. LDI Africa will also present its Emerging Institutions Fellowship Program and current openings to place rising global leaders and professionals in industries across the continent.
