The overarching mission of the East African Employability summit and Uongozi Career awards 2023 is to assess the gains made by stakeholders in the community’s higher education sector and out of school ecosystem to close the employability skills gap established a decade ago. This is in a view to deepen the transformation of the sector to facilitate the transition from academia to industry.
Africa is under unprecedented pressure to create jobs for her young population characterized by a median age of 19.7 years. The crisis of the youth bulge has seen the continent's skilled workforce miss out on the competitive job market. On average 60% of the continent's youth are out of work-a phenomenon expected to worsen by 2050 when the continent’s youth population is projected to hit the billion.
