Researchers at IBM Research Africa share the fascinating stories of their personal journeys in research with President Salovey. President Salovey expressed his joy at seeing young people who are passionate about technology & Africa. He hopes that from the conversations, they share in his enthusiasm for partnership and it will spark a sustainable relationship between the two institutions. #YaleInAfrica #YaleInKenya
Program Director, Maya Kulycky welcomes President Salovey to the IBM Research Africa Think Tank in Nairobi.

Takeaway from the Leadership Forum: All leaders have crucible moments but impactful leadership starts with self mastery and is guided by ethics and wisdom.

“International collaboration has become increasingly important for advancing science,” Salovey said. “Researchers collaborate to share their knowledge to solve complex problems that are progressively cross-disciplinary in nature.” L-R Dr. Catherine Kyobutungi, executive director of the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC); Dr. Segenet Kelemu, director general of the International Center of Insect Physiology and Ecology(ICIPE) ; Prof. Nelson Torto, executive director of the African Academy of Sciences (AAS); and President Peter Salovey at the Symposium on the Power of Partnerships in strengthening University.
President Salovey alongside Lily Tanui, 2016 alumna of the Yale Young Global Scholars Program. Lily presented president Salovey with a gift, a Maasai blanket “Shuka” in celebration of his visit to Kenya. The Alumni Reception in Nairobi saw President Salovey acquire a new name, Ole Tanui. Yalies were excited to welcome him to their home as they shared their own memories of New Haven and how much it had impacted their lives. Kenya sends the most number of students from Africa to Yale. #YaleInKenya #YaleInAfrica
“This initiative is part of a broad commitment across the university to build on our longstanding relationships in Africa,” said President Salovey. “Yale, our partner institutions, and even the world benefit immensely from our collaborations with people and organizations on the continent.” President Salovey has a moment with students soon after the Impactful Leadership Forum where he announced the partnership MBA program with @Yale and @strathmore.university #YaleInKenya #YaleInAfrica
