Selection Board



CALL FOR FELLOW SELECTION BOARD MEMBERS FOR LDI AFRICA EMERGING INSTITUTIONS FELLOWSHIP SPRING 2016

LDI Africa is seeking qualified individuals to serve as members of its Selection Board for its Emerging Institutions Fellowship Program Spring 2016 class.

Members of the Selection Board help LDI Africa select the best candidates from a competitive pool of applicants. Candidates will be selected based on their professional experience, education and commitment to the development of Africa’s enterprises. The selection process is designed to ensure that each candidate meets the qualifications of the African institutions for which their service is needed. The Selection Board is therefore essential to the selection process, as they would evaluate and score applicants based on guidelines, and provide recommendations to LDI Africa.

The board will constitute a broad selection of mid level professionals who have interests in Africa through heritage, work or investment. We encourage nationals and non-nationals of African countries to apply. Expertise in the following areas is strongly suggested:

  • Impact Investing
  • Social Enterprise
  • International Development
  • Human Resource Management
  • Doing business, living or working in Africa

Each Selection Board Member will interview 5 – 10 candidates for 30 minutes each and will provide recommendations to LDI Africa in writing. Selection board members also design and facilitate interviewing and storytelling workshops for the candidates. Interviews will be held from December 12th - December 19th, 2015.

Selection Board Members do not receive compensation and are encouraged with their shared vision in Africa’s development.

Please send a resume/bio and a cover letter to john-ubong@ldiafrica.org. LDI Africa will contact Selection Board Members with confirmation of acceptance by November 5, 2015. For further questions, please contact john-ubong@ldiafrica.org.
