Identifying Digital Opportunities for African Youth
February 14, 2013 Editor 0
While global leaders met in Davos last month at the World Economic Forum focused on Resilient Dynamism, The Rockefeller Foundation hosted a meeting in New York focused on how African youth can be resilient in a dynamic global economy. We brought together a diverse group of representatives from the information and communication technology (ICT) sector including Accenture, Microsoft, CISCO and IBM with non-profits MercyCorps and International Youth Foundation, major donors USAID and IFC along with thought leaders and Rockefeller Foundation partners like Digital Divide Data, Samasource, Monitor Deloitte and the William Davidson Institute to identify promising areas in the digital economy that can provide job opportunities for African youth.
