Summit Leader Meetings
African leaders and President Obama will engage in dialogue in three action-oriented sessions that will address issues of shared interest and mutual concern.

 

Leader Session I – Investing in Africa’s Future
The opening session will discuss inclusive, sustainable development, economic growth, and trade and investment.

 

Leader Session II – Peace and Regional Stability
A working lunch centered around shared concerns regarding peace and security, including a discussion of long-term solutions to regional conflicts, peacekeeping challenges, and combating transnational threats.

 

 

Leader Session III – Governing for the Next Generation
This session will allow for a candid conversation about the greatest challenges and opportunities for Africa’s continued political and economic progress and a specific focus on governance. This session will focus on how to enhance governance in order to deliver services to citizens, attract and prepare for increased domestic and foreign direct investment, manage transnational threats, and stem the flow of illicit finance.

Side Events

In order to leverage the presence in Washington, D.C. of so many African leaders as well as the intense interest in U.S.-Africa ties that the Summit has engendered, a number of non government actors – the private sector and non-profit organizations — are organizing events along the margins to coincide with the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit.

YALI / Young African Leaders Initiative / logo

 

President Obama launched the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) in 2010 to support young leaders with opportunities and resources. Through YALI, the United States is committing significant resources to enhance leadership skills, bolster entrepreneurship, and connect young African leaders with one another, with the United States, and with the American people. Investing in the next generation of African leaders is critical to ensuring the success of Africa’s democracies and its economies.

 

The Washington Fellowship for Young African Leaders is the exchange program of the President’s Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI). This program brings over 500 young leaders to the United States each year, beginning in 2014, for leadership training, academic coursework, and mentoring. It also creates unique opportunities in Africa, through internships and follow-on opportunities, to put those new skills to practical use in propelling economic growth and prosperity and strengthening democratic institutions. To be part of the YALI Network, follow @YALINetwork on Twitter or find us on Facebook.

  1. Hmm, I noticed in every posed photograph that Barack and Michelle appear to lean forward which makes their shoulders to appear rounded somewhat. They are not like that in the other unposed images.

    • Well….remember there are over 40 posed images with dignitaries so this lasted about 1 hour and a half…they were tired as hell by the time this ended. I’d be slouched as well.

      • I continued to think about that after I posted my message and have come to the conclusion that there is more to it than that. I believe it is unconscious body language at work. What those images tell me is that Michelle and Barack are caring people and it shows through their posture. I am truly curious now to see other images. I am not a person to simply glance at an image, I look deeper, at even the smallest details. It’s those details that interest me.

        By the way, Bro, I have good news… Ana’s daughter-in-law had been told that she MUST have a psychiatric evaluation done before they can even think of letting those children come home – and the soonest time would be MONTHS from now. That was before those letters went out last Friday… :) On Tuesday her daughter-in-law was informed that suddenly there is an available appointment for this coming Monday. :D

        Tell me I don’t get results! :p I am so happy for Ana today. It’s not the end yet… We have to keep up the strategy.

        The new responsibility is with the Annie Casey Foundation looking to making the child welfare system reforms. I’m now a member, as of yesterday, and will do what ever I can.

        I hope my joy is rubbing off on you! ;) How are you today, Bro? I hope you are sassy today. <3

      • I am more happy for you and Ana than you can imagine. I have oppression and injustice, it makes my ass need a drink of water. I am thrilled you have gotten results, you are DA WOMAN!!! Congratulations on a battle not yet won, but progress has been made.
