The LéO Africa Institute is set to hold yet another economic forum to discuss economic inclusion and decent employment in the East Africa region.

This year’s one-day forum will attract speakers from Uganda, mind Rwanda and Kenya, and over 200 participants who will at the end of the conference sign a commitment to champion the need for equitable and inclusive economic growth and creation of meaningful employment for all working age.

Themed “Leave No One Behind: Promoting inclusive economic growth & decent employment for all by 2030”, the discussion will take place on July 22 at Kampala Serena Conference Center with support from the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung and United Nations in Uganda.

Kwezi Tabaro, the programmes coordinator at the LéO Africa institute says; “This year’s forum will focus on what economies in the East African region should do to stem the growing income inequality that is threatening regional security and stability.”

LéO Africa is an independent organization focused on shaping the next generation of values-based leaders across Africa. Through leadership training, community interactions, and conferences, the institute reaches out to thousands of young leaders across East Africa.

“Platforms like the Economic Forum on East Africa provide us an opportunity to engage the business sector in the region on what both the private and public sector can do to enhance inclusive economic growth that creates employment opportunities for our young people,” says Awel Uwihanganye, the Senior Director and Co-founder at LéO Africa.

The Institute also invests in building networks among these young and emerging thought leaders through high-level dialogues with decision makers in government, and mentorship sessions by its extensive network of fellows, so as to build a well-connected network of leaders who are committed to creating a better future for Africa.
