The seminar was be centered on defining, achieving and managing success. The fellows explored these topics through reflection on a range of selected readings, and discussions with the LeO Africa Institute faculty, as well as guest speakers from our partners, Stanbic Bank.

Class of 2017 YELP Experience
Leadership is critical to the fortunes of any country because it not only shapes culture, but also determines the allocation of scarce resources, that in the end have serious implications on the collective fortunes of a people. My application for the YELP Fellowship was motivated by a desire to learn on how I can be a better leader in my own society. As an educated young woman, I realize I occupy a privileged position in society, which I need to recognize and meaningfully utilize by positively impacting others.
