Some of the types of event we hold include: 

Receptions

AGI-US receptions are intimate gatherings of 10-20 people to raise awareness and support for our work. They are usually hosted by AGI Champions and allow a select group to engage directly with AGI’s senior leadership.

Roundtables

AGI’s experts share their experience on a wide range of topics relating to Africa’s future.

Our roundtables are normally held with think tanks, organizational partners, and other NGOs. Recent event topics include Ethiopia’s industrialization boom, investing in African prosperity, effective philanthropy and international development, and Ebola recovery.  

Webinars

Our webinars are hosted by AGI where we bring in experts to share briefs covering current topics, pressing issues, and emerging best practices. Our webinars allow individuals to engage directly with our team while encouraging questions and thoughtful conversation.

We look forward to seeing you at one soon!
