The live webcast will address the topic of youth employment with entrepreneurs being the continent’s game-changers of job creation and paving the way for entrepreneurship opportunities for youth across Africa.

Renowned panelists including leading African influencers and business leaders will share their perspectives on how the employment, entrepreneurial spirit, and new technologies can work toward ensuring that all young people in Africa have access to building more prosperous livelihoods.

Panelists include: Patricia Obozuwa Director Communications & Public Affairs, General Electric Africa; Chude Jideonwo Co-Founder and Managing Partner at RED Media; Nelson Amo Chief Executive Officer, Innohub Ltd.; Takunda Chingonzo Co-Founder of Neolab Technology and Jeremy Riro Principal Consultant, Fie-Consult.

Referring to a recent research report1 commissioned by Djembe Communications, Kevin Nolan, Director – International for Djembe Communications, commented: “Job creation is truly the most important issue for the future of the Sub-Saharan region, with the largest percentage (48%)1 of survey respondents recognizing its significance.

Moreover, African leaders at the recent World Economic Forum in Kigali discussed the various challenges for job creation in Africa, focusing on opportunities for public-private partnership that will generate more jobs and higher living standards in Africa as a whole. At Djembe we are committed to leading conversations around how the continent addresses this dilemma and greatly look forward to hearing the perspectives of our esteemed panelists and participants.”

The webinar is being held in partnership with the African Innovation Foundation, the organization dedicated to innovation-led socio-economic development in Africa, RED, a youth engagement and marketing digital agency, and G.E. Africa, an organization moving, building, powering and curing the continent with innovative and sustainable solutions tailored for each country they serve in the region.
