University of Exeter; University of the West of England
Meetings and Proceedings
In this paper we will draw on our experiences of researching a pan-African leadership development initiative to explore the manner in which participants use their understanding of leadership to facilitate beneficial social change in their communities. The voices that speak to this are African - 300 men and women from 19 sub-Saharan countries; participants on a Pan-African leadership development programme sponsored by the British Council (through money from a Spending Review bid from the British Treasury) and delivered in partnership with Questions of Difference (QoD) and LEAD International.
