In celebration of what would be Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday, we are called upon to consider how we can continue his legacy in the next 100 years to come. We are charged to reexamine what advancement means and what progress looks like, and we are tasked to define what we will do to cultivate our next generation of leaders. The 2018 Next 100 Summit has brought together some of the most influential leaders, thinkers, and doers from across sub-Saharan Africa and the diaspora as well as from across the globe to discuss how we can come together and build a better future.
