The event will feature dialogues on the importance of rule of law and human rights, fighting corruption and advancing property rights, government accountability, careers in advancing freedom across the continent, and more. Attendees will learn from distinguished speakers and participate in interactive sessions to strengthen civil society efforts to move public policy in the direction of greater freedom.

Keynote speakers include international business leaders, economists, development and policy experts, including Senegalese entrepreneur, Magatte Wade, the founder and CEO of SkinIsSkin.com, who will lead conversations on how we can communicate the need for economic freedom to African citizens, business leaders, NGOs, and global supporters of African prosperity. Ambassador Dr. Martin Kimani, Director of the National Counter-Terrorism Center Kenya and Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary serving as Kenya’s Permanent Representative and Head of Mission to the United Nations at Nairobi, will also speak. 

Other speakers include Dr. Garett Bloor, President of The Canada-Africa Chamber of Business; June Arunga, Founder, Usafi Comfort; Temba Nolutshungu, Director of the Free Market Foundation, South Africa, Japheth Omojuwa, founder and Chief Strategist at The Alpha Reach; Linda Kavuka, Programs Manager at African Students For Liberty; Brad Lips, Atlas Network’s chief executive officer; and Dr. Tom Palmer, the executive vice president for international programs at Atlas Network.
