Welcome to the Third Annual Harvard African Development Conference, hosted by the African student organizations of Harvard University.
Each year over 300 members of faculty, alumni, students, and community participants converge at Harvard University's only multidisciplinary conference dedicated to development in Africa. Attendees are provided with the unique opportunity to engage in meaningfully animated discussions with leaders in the fields of business, law, government, healthcare, and design.
The theme for this year's conference, "Rethinking Development in Africa," emphasizes our desire to move beyond solution generation for the myriad challenges and opportunities that face the continent, and to explore instead strategies for executing already laid plans. The conference, to be held March 24 at Harvard Law School, will feature a number of distinguished guests including keynote speaker Mr. Tito Mboweni, former governor of the South African Reserve Bank, and Anne-Marie Gulde-Wolf, Deputy Director of IMF's Africa Department.
We sincerely hope that you are able to join us for what is sure to be an engaging exploration of the future of development in Africa.
