On March 11, President Peter Salovey opened the Yale Leadership Forum in Accra, Ghana, hosted by Yale, La Fundación Mujeres por África (the Women for Africa Foundation), and Banco Santander. Previous participants of Yale’s Leadership Forum for Strategic Impact participated in the event, which featured an agenda that focused on strategies and ideas for supporting the next generation of African women leaders. Emma Sky, a Senior Fellow at Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs and director of Yale’s Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program, moderated the first panel discussion on leadership. Sky was recently named the new director of the Leadership Forum.
