Global Lunch Forum

Please join GCIV and Ambassador Robin Renee Sanders for a lunchtime discussion as we examine the dramatic shift in the development paradigm for Sub Saharan Africa, driven in large part by the imaginative, innovative and insta-impact leadership if the region’s small businesses.

Ambassador (Dr.) Robin Renee Sanders served as one of the U.S. Government’s top diplomats on African issues over a long career in the United States Diplomatic Corps with senior positions ranging from Ambassador to the Republics of Nigeria and the Congo, two stints as Director for Africa at the White House, and the U.S. Permanent Representative to the West African Regional Organization ECOWAS. Dr. Sanders received her doctorate degree from Pittsburgh’s Robert Morris University and is a thought leader on today’s Africa political, economic, and security issues. Dr. Sanders will have available her new book entitled “The Rise of Africa’s Small & Medium Size Enterprises” that includes an introduction by renowned civil rights leader Ambassador Andrew Young, and a foreword by Africa’s leading businessman, Mr. Aliko Dangote.
