Grassroots Governance and Accountability: How do we build trust and make it happen
The failures of leadership in government over a number of years has plummeted South Africa into a precarious socio-economic position, with foreign investment scared from our shores.
The vacuum in leadership is felt most by those already living in disadvantaged communities, where their interests are not heard or adequately served. The vacuum also leaves room for thuggery, extortion, and further exploitation of vulnerable individuals.
Against this backdrop, we ask; ‘How do we build honest, ethical, and effective grassroots level leadership in SA?’
Join the Business Day Dialogues in association with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and the Ecumenical Foundation of Southern Africa as Business, Religious, Academic and Civil Society leaders tackle the underlying issues and discuss the ethical leadership that is required to restore hope for a shared future in South Africa, where no one gets left behind.
This online discussion will take place on the 26th of August, at 9h00 (SAST).
