Legal Interact Head of Business Development Selected as a ISF Fellow
ISF recognises the next generation of problem-solvers with extraordinary potential in geopolitics, innovation, and public leadership.
This prestigious honour is well-deserved by Leah, who is a strong leader in our business (and other initiatives), bringing innovative ideas, and strategies together to develop and implement business initiatives that make real differences. So, it makes sense that ISF would bet on Leah and the rest of the rising leaders in technology, geopolitics, and public leadership aged between 25-35 from across Africa, Asia, North America, and Europe.
There are more than 100 Fellows representing over 40 countries who receive an 11-month, non-residential fellowship. The diverse range of Fellows have a focus on various fields such as health, water security, climate change, and technology for improved democracy, furthering the idea of bringing together bright minds to drive progress.
ISF was created to forge an interdisciplinary network of rising leaders to strengthen progress and security amid technological innovation and a changing world order. This philanthropic initiative, which was founded by Wendy and Eric Schmidt, brings talented people together in networks to test their ideas and solve complex problems in science and society.
Leah recently attended the first gathering of all ISF Fellows, which focused on the what the future of the world holds, and to form ideas of calls to action to address regional issues in North America, Africa, Asia, and Europe focusing on four thematic areas:
- Emerging technologies,
- Innovation and entrepreneurship,
- Civic engagement and democratic resilience, and
- Security and defense.
We are excited to see how Leah contributes to ISF as a Fellow and we know that her extensive knowledge, especially in the legal tech space, will be a powerful asset.
