Get involved – Emerging Leader Opportunity

Dear Emerging Leaders,

We are writing to share with you an exciting opportunity for one member of the Emerging Leader’s Network to facilitate a panel discussion at the next Africa Canada Forum Colloquium on October 14-15, 2014, in Ottawa. The conference title is “Building Partnerships to Tackle Inequality:  Opportunities and Challenges for African and Canadian CSOs”. We will match your skills and interest to the panel that you would be best suited for. Once an EL is accepted, we will carefully go through the agenda to determine what is in the best interest of the colloquium and you. You may facilitate in French or English.

The successful candidate would be expected to:

  • Brainstorm and help to design the objectives of a panel with the Africa Canada Forum Coordinator;
  • To attend conference calls with panel participants to ensure the objectives are clear to participants and to ensure participants presentations focus on the objectives;
  • To draft a series of interesting questions to prompt the presenters on after their presentation;
  • To be available to facilitate a panel discussion on either October 14 or October 15; and
  • To report back your experiences to the Emerging Leaders Network.

Please note: The selected emerging leader will be invited to observe the colloquium on the day of their presentation.

If you are interested in this opportunity please contact Kimberly MacMillan (
