Transformation Fellows

Accra, Ghana
Posted 8 months ago

The African Center for Economic Transformation (ACET) has launched its Transformation Fellows Program.

The resident fellows will directly support country relevant policy analysis and implementation in sectors such as manufacturing, agro-processsing, skills development and extractives that are among the key pathways to transformation. The fellows will also be closely involved in ACET’s coordination role with the G20 Compact for Africa countries, as they implement reforms to attract enhanced investment. At the same time, the Transformation Fellows will expand their own understanding of development issues facing Africa and help craft solutions to some of the continent’s biggest challenges.

Selected ACET Transformation Fellows will include African professionals, particularly from the diaspora but also those on the continent where appropriate, who will work on specific projects or policy challenges related to ACET’s core platforms and programs. It will also allow them to work in a pan-African organization with strong capacity and convening power.
