THIS TALK HAS BEEN CANCELLED. To learn more about Harambee's model, please join us at 11am for the Walmart Model session, in which Maryana will now participate.

Today, one out of every two young South Africans are unemployed - the third highest unemployment rate in the world.  Increasing the number of young South Africans from poor households who can compete and access opportunities in the economy is both urgent and essential to inclusive growth, shared prosperity, and social cohesion. Join Maryana Iskander, CEO of the Harambee Youth Employment Accelerator (a USAID partner), to share South Africa’s leading workforce development model and her perspective on the importance of public-private partnership, evidence, and innovation in tackling this crisis.
