The principles and ethos of We Will Lead Africa are to center everyday African leaders who model the following:
We: Collaborative and accountable leaders, taking unified action.
Will: The leadership WILL, grit and courage to do something, anything, now and for the future, demonstrated through action-oriented and aspirational leadership.
Lead: Everyday leaders, motivated by service, in every sector, including emerging leaders from marginalised groups. Leaders with a deep authenticity and integrity in their leadership. They focus on a values-driven path in their industry, even when it is challenging.
Africa: A focus on a prosperous continent, where divides are bridged and leaders work across boundaries and borders to achieve a broader success.
