About the room & ALX

  • In 2035, Africa will have the largest workforce in the world and will need to catalyse transformation by empowering its largest untapped resource - its people. Fuelled by this, the African Leadership Group is an ecosystem of institutions with a shared vision to harness Africa's abundant human capital and transform the continent and the world by selecting, developing, and connecting 2 million by 2030. ALG was founded over 15 years ago by Fred Swaniker, a serial entrepreneur recognised by Time Magazine as one of the 100 most influential people of 2019 and his partners. ALX and The Room are two brands of the African Leadership Group.
  • ALX is our training platform, a Pan-African leadership movement for high potential and high impact leaders that enables them to take on Africa’s greatest challenges and most exciting opportunities. It is increasingly focusing on developing skills for the fourth industrial revolution (software engineering, data science, cybersecurity, etc.) to ensure that Africa is able to compete effectively as the world undergoes a digital transformation.
  • The Room is a community that enables our young talent to access a lifetime of extraordinary opportunities and meaningful relationships. To learn more about us, please read this article about why we launched The Room & this article about the impact of our development programs in African youth.

About the city community team

Each City Team harnesses the power of The Room global network by training exceptional talent and connecting them to jobs and other opportunities for professional development. Along the way, each team unlocks value by making it easier for companies to find the top talent they need. Each City Team is like a standalone business that is blazing a new path for The Room, but is supported by the history and reputation of the African Leadership Group.
  • In pursuit of our mission, we encourage autonomy, creativity, and experimentation. We embrace risks and failure. We seek those that have a beginners’ mindset, are lifelong learners, thrive in uncertain circumstances and uncharted territory, and have a deep passion for youth engagement.
