About this grant

The Gordon Institute of Business Science, based at the University of Pretoria, was established in 1999 with funding from a South African entrepreneur and has grown into a leading business school. It recently launched the Centre for Policy, Leadership and Gender Studies to address the many challenges still facing South Africa in overcoming its apartheid past.This grant will provide support for the center’s "Dialogue Circles" program, which aim to create opportunities for interaction and exchange across the different sectors of South African society to explore common solutions to the divides of race, poverty and gender. The programs will target current and emerging leadership in business, government and civil society, and provide the space for them to share perspectives and explore the roles they can play in improving the current socioeconomic situation in the country.
