The Leader Collective

The Leader Collective is an online community of practice that exists to convene, cultivate, and amplify African leaders driving health and development change.


The Leader Collective exists to:

  1. Foster community building and collaboration through meaningful thought exchange, peer support, networking and learning.
  2. Expand access to quality and diverse resources that strengthen leaders, organizations and development practices with intentionality.
  3. Showcase best practices, impact and learning generated by its members and their models of community development, health, leadership, equity and social change.
  4. Positively influence the practice of development and philanthropy by advancing opportunities for equitable African-led and community-driven partnership models.


Many and one - at the same time

We chose the word collective because it captures the concepts of "many" and "one" at the same time. Inherent to its definition, a collective is marked by something that is shared. Community, synergy, coming together, mutuality and peers uniting are the synonyms that re-phrase what a collective is and does.


Continuous Co-creation

We are committed to being a community in continuous co-creation responding to the interests of the membership over time. The Leader Collective is a resource freely available welcoming the wider community of African-led and Africa-allied organizations, partners and practitioners.
