9TH AFRICAN LEADERSHIP MAGAZINE PERSONS OF THE YEAR AWARDS GALA

About The Event

THEME: Intentional Leadership: Rethinking Development Priorities in Africa

The African Leadership Magazine Persons of the Year Awards is Africa’s premier vote-based endorsement, reserved annually for the leading Africans who are contributing towards promoting the continent progress, and positively altering Africa’s perceived negative image. The event, which is in its 8th year, has become a referendum of some sort by Africans on purposeful leadership in the continent. A shortlist of nominees are selected from results gathered via a Call for nomination – traditionally promoted via online and offline campaigns across the continent, and globally. The call for nomination and subsequent selection of Africans with the largest number of entries in 7 categories, is followed by a poll on our website: www.africanleadershipmagazine.co.uk and our social media platforms – through which the winners emerge.

The keenly contested poll, across 7 different categories, attracts huge entries in upward of 300,000 to 700,000 entries on the website; entries across our social media platforms, and submissions via email. Winners are then decorated and presented with the instruments of honour, usually within the last week of February. The event attracts a wide spectrum of African policy, diplomatic and business leaders.


The annual event have also become a platform for honouring people-cantered leadership and Africans that are pursuing a pan-African agenda in their chosen fields of endeavour. 


This year’s event will provide a platform to celebrate the continent’s purveyors of hope. Business, political and diplomatic leaders who are helping us to see possibilities in the midst of a global pandemic that has become and existential threat.

    Event Brief

    The Covid-19 Storm Has Blown Us into Uncharted Territory.

    Most office towers are emptied or scanty. Employees who usually work on-site are sequestered at home. Millions of service workers, and a growing number of corporate workers, have lost their jobs. Businesses are determining how to safely reopen their doors in a drastically different reality, essential workers are putting their lives at risk, uncertainty and fear are rampant, and social inequalities are magnified. 

    Empathy and trust have become critical as physical distancing makes connecting across differences particularly challenging. Likewise, companies around the world have been forced into an unplanned experiment with remote and flexible working.  

    According to Amar Bhattacharya and Nicholas Stern, ‘’The COVID-19 pandemic has underlined the fragility and dangers of the old growth path’’.  Thus, the case for inclusive leadership post COVID-19 can be described as a global emergency.

     COVID-19 has brought to the forefront the urgency of inclusive growth and the impact of unequal growth.”–Shamina Singh, Founder & President of Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth.

    These profound truths by these eminent personalities point to one fact, the world has become increasingly unequal in countries, societies and businesses. The trend of inequality is likely to accelerate, partly also by the economic damage of the current COVID-19 crisis.

    Nations and businesses have begun to look at ways of transforming their economies after all this chaos. Thus, it has been universally agreed that, leadership style will matter now more than ever.

    Reports from several quarters have alluded to the fact that gender inclusive leadership will be an important part of the road map to economy recovery post COVID -19.

    For instance, during the Africa Summit 2020, on Thursday 25 June 2020, organized by the African Leadership UK group, the Vice President of the Republic of Liberia H.E Dr. Jewel Howard-Taylor emphasized ‘the need to prioritize the empowerment of women and girls in Africa during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. She stressed that this was going to be a key response strategy for economic recovery post COVID-19.

    Truly, the real heroines in the fight against COVID-19 are women’. Significant attention has been given to women political leaders in high-income settings, where it has been reported that women have led several countries’ effective national responses to COVID-19.

    Thus, for there to be a transformed economy post COVID 19, there has to be a leadership that is inclusive of all genders. In spite of the numerous leadership constructs, a deficit continues to exist, calling for a redress to these societal inadequacies, with immense women leadership underrepresentation prevailing in most countries. The leadership potential in women is likely to be unleashed through an inclusive approach that cuts across the workplace spectrum.

    Inclusive leadership have been simply explained as “leaders who are aware of their own biases and preferences, actively seek out and consider different views and perspectives to inform better decision-making.

    The transition to a new way of working—in the context of a global pandemic with far-reaching societal and economic implications—presents both challenges and opportunities for promoting diversity and fostering inclusion. Before COVID-19, the social and business imperatives for diversity and inclusion (D&I) became increasingly clear, with commitment to and investment in D&I on the rise across corporate America and around the world. Now, in light of COVID-19, it is more important than ever for organizations and individuals to practice inclusive leadership.

    In this period of heightened uncertainty, a perceived lack of control and the spread of misinformation increases risks of bias, xenophobia, and racism that impact people in the workplace and beyond. At work, ever-changing policies impact individuals in different ways—based on, for example, job classification, socioeconomic status, living situation, family structure, immigration status, or the ease of virtual alternatives to daily work—which can perpetuate inequities in the workplace. Therefore, organizations must take steps now to continue to strengthen diversity and build inclusive cultures in ways unlike ever before—through new communications strategies (internal and external), programs, data collection practices, and interventions that continue the momentum toward a more equitable and just world. A daily practice of inclusive leadership has become a necessity for all leaders as well.

    It has therefore become pertinent for nations and organisations to practice inclusive leadership as a means of building back transformed economies, post COVID 19. 

    Why is inclusive leadership important?

    Inclusive leadership is essential for making sure diverse thinking is respected, managed, heard and applied. In addition, inclusive leaders who understand how different thinkers react to change are uniquely prepared to communicate and influence in a way that gets everyone on board with new ideas and new ways of doing things.

    Another positive score for inclusive leadership is how essential it is for innovation, as companies focus more intently on innovation, whether it’s the big, transformational kind or smaller, incremental improvements. Innovation efforts don’t usually fail because no one could come up with a great, workable idea. It’s at the execution and implementation phases where things tend to fall apart. One reason? Innovation implies change, and our mindsets create resistance to change.

    Although, there are several factors that make people feel included in organisations, including an organization’s mission, policies, and practices, as well as co-worker behaviours; it mostly comes down to leaders. What leaders say and do makes up to a 70% difference as to whether an individual reports feeling included. This really matters because the more people feel included, the more they speak up, go the extra mile, and collaborate — all of which ultimately lifts organizational performance.

    Given this formula, inclusive leadership is emerging as a unique and critical capability helping government and organizations adapt to diverse changes caused by the pandemic.

    In light of this business case for inclusive leadership as a way of building back transformed economies post covid-19, the Amazons Watch Magazine, in strategic partnership with the Centre for Economic and Leadership Development (CELD), presents the 8th edition of the South America-Africa-Middle East- Asia Women Summit (SAMEAWS), with the theme set as: Building Back Transformed Economies Post COVID 19: The need for Inclusive Leadership. 

    SAMEAWS which has always held in the city of Dubai, will hold virtually this year as a result of the social distancing necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The event shall electronically gather Female Heads of Government, Deputy Heads of Government, Senior Government Leaders and Stakeholders from across developing nations, under one roof, to realise the following objectives: 

    1. Convene Think-Tanks, Experts, Academics, Researchers and Research scholars to explore unique approaches to economy recovery post COVID-19.
    2. Get Global Female Business and Political Leaders to forge and create powerful networks that would help strengthen their influence and impact in their countries and their pledge for inclusive leadership in their countries, communities, businesses and work places.
    3. Convene a High-Level Roundtable Sessions and Panel Discussions for stakeholders across developing nations to engage and exchange experiences, lessons-learned and best practices in developing diversity of skills and female leadership in the society.
    4. Celebrate some of influential leaders and businesses across emerging economies, who have responded significantly to the global pandemic and pivoted the way they operate to be a force for good.
    5. Celebrate female led businesses and organisations who have through their staying power, proven that women can achieve whatever they set out to.

    Event Brief

    Since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, African leaders have given voice to long-standing systemic imbalances between the region’s status in global affairs and the rest of the more developed world, in the areas of trade and investments, multilateral commitments towards addressing uneven impacts of climate change on the continent,  security and defense cooperation, and a myriad of other issues. Post – pandemic, with an impending continental recession, and international anti-racism protests, African governments are reassessing their roles in the international system. In the coming months, African leaders will almost certainly demand a bigger say on global issues in multilateral forums and more equitable ties with existing partners as well as step up as standard-bearers for multilateralism in an increasingly fragmented world. If their counterparts want to repair and revive its links to the region in this new reality, it will need to rethink its approach to developing and sustaining its partnerships.


    The African Leadership magazine is therefore putting together, the International Forum on African Leadership (IFAL) 2020 with the theme: Rethinking Global Partnerships and Africa’s economic resurgence. The Forum will bring together the divergent views and thoughts of leading experts, academics, researchers, business and political Leaders and key stakeholders to address the pathway to Africa’s resurgence.

    Event Brief

    Africa is no doubt still the last trade frontier in today’s world. 

    Pre-COVID, the World Economic Forum identified that at least half of the world’s fastest-growing economies have been in Africa since 2000; and by 2030, Africa will be home to 1.7 billion people, whose combined consumer and business spending will total $6.7 trillion. Furthermore, it is expected that 43% of Africans will belong to the middle or upper classes, up from 39.6% in 2013, implying considerably higher demand for goods and services. By 2030, household consumption alone is expected to reach $2.5 trillion, up from $1.1 trillion in 2015, according to available statistics. 

    In a post-COVID world, however, Africa is still expected to represent exciting opportunities for global businesses seeking markets for expansion in the race for recovery. And as some experts have predicted, global growth will be 4%, as pent-up demand and new vaccines power recovery from the 2020 global GDP slump. Global geopolitical arrangements also may have been considerably altered. Hence, a post-COVID world offers opportunities for nations to reset relations in a way that there are much more mutually beneficial outcomes and long-term impacts for parties.

    A post-COVID Africa would need its partners more than ever before as it braces itself for what some expect to be arduous recovery from the battery of the coronavirus pandemic. Africa would deeply count on United States (US) Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo’s statement when he said that “no country will rival what the US is doing” in terms of supporting the fight against Covid-19 in Africa. But pundits have argued that the US hasn’t engaged adequately and correctly on the continent of Africa, creating room for other interests gaining a stronger foothold, despite the US have been a preferred traditional partner. Does the post-COVID world offer the opportunity for a necessary realignment in US Africa relations?

    African Leadership Magazine is, therefore, putting together the 5TH US Africa Investment Forum & Policy Dialogue 2020 to bring together Policymakers, private sector leaders, Industry Titans, civil society leaders, and all stakeholders in US-Africa matters during this 2-day forum to contribute to shaping a new future for our common good.

    KEY HIGHLIGHTS OF THE FORUM

    1. Keynotes, Plenary and Breakout session
    2. Industry Roundtables and Thematic Paper Presentations
    3. Policymakers Roundtable Session: a high-level platform designed to engage the US/African policymakers in discussions on Africa Continental Free Trade Agreement (AfCFTA), Defence and security co-operations; AGOA and other Economic Development avenues; and deepening people-to-people relationships.
    4. Race Relations Roundtable dialogue session
    5. The 10th African Business Leadership Awards and presentations to ‘Top 25 US companies doing business in Africa’. In recognition of their contributions to communities’ development and COVID-19 response.
    6. Unveiling of the Top 100 African American Leaders 2020 List.

    WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

    • Policymakers, Senior Government Officials and Diplomats
    • Heads of Government, Agencies, and institutions
    • Major Industry Titans and private sector leaders
    • Think-tanks and International Development Institutions
    • Academics, Civil society leaders and 
    • All US-Africa relations stakeholders
