Who Are We?
Learning and Development (L&D) Africa is a network of L&D professionals in Africa and beyond. We bring together African L&D practitioners and enthusiasts in the organizational and personal development space to engage, develop ideas and share common learnings.
We organize conferences, webinars and seminars for members of our network and other interested parties. Our flagship event is our annual L&D Africa Conference which brings together over 700 participants from all over the world to discuss relevant themes and issues in the L&D industry in Africa and beyond.
The network is hosted by Rainbow Consult which coordinates the activities of L&D Africa.
Why this network?
As of 2020, Africa had 250 International Finance Corporation (IFC) and 2682 International Labour Organisation (ILO) certified trainers. Despite the considerable size of the L&D industry in Africa, there was previously no existing platform or event that provided L&D Professionals in Africa a space to meet to discuss and share ideas. L&D Africa, therefore, seeks to fill this gap by creating a platform and avenue for African L&D professionals to meet as one unified body, and share home-grown ideas and solutions to Africa’s peculiar challenges within the context of international best practices.
