Emerging Public Leaders (EPL)
African governments are underperforming, as Africa faces several structural challenges. This results in a civil service that tends to be bigger, older, and less qualified than anywhere else. Emerging Public Leaders (EPL) exists to solve this dilemma.
Through their Public Service Fellowship, they provide a merit-based pathway for new talent to work in government, and improve civil service performance in Africa
They believe Africa’s development and economic growth can be accelerated through building a stronger civil service from the bottom up. At EPL, they recruit Africa’s most promising future leaders and place them into meaningful civil service positions. Over a period of two years, fellows are provided with the supervisory support, rigorous training and mentorship they need to launch and build a successful career in public service.
With a footprint in Liberia and Ghana, their short-term vision is to expand their Public Service Fellowship Program and create a pan-African network of 500+ fellows by 2022.See more
