Before we unveil who is part of our newest cohort of #ObamaLeaders from the Asia-Pacific region next week, take a look back at President Obama and his sister Maya Soetoro-Ng reflecting on what their hopes for the next generation of leaders are for this dynamic area of the world.
Our newest cohort of #ObamaLeaders are tackling a broad range of issues, but they also have a lot in common: each has made a significant impact in their respective communities across Europe. We're excited to follow their journeys this year.
This week I sat down with @LanaCondor and some #ObamaLeaders to learn more about their work to empower girls in communities across Asia. They're helping to remove barriers that prevent girls from pursuing their dreams, and I can’t wait to see the good that comes from their work.
As the world reflects on Nelson Mandela and his extraordinary legacy, this #MandelaDay we are inspired by the hundreds of #ObamaLeaders in Africa who are picking up the baton of change in their own communities. Learn more about their work: obama.org/africa/
Today I joined the #ObamaLeaders at their service project in Kuala Lumpur. As we built furniture for local schools in need, I saw the next generation of leaders in action—young people dedicated to lifting each other up, lending a hand, and building a better world.
Join us in welcoming the newest class of #ObamaLeaders from across Africa! Focusing on a broad range of issue areas from public health to women’s rights—these leaders are ready to work together to address their communities' most pressing needs. obama.org/africa-2022/
I am so proud of these young leaders who are putting in the work to build on their leadership skills, connect with one another, and make a bigger impact across Africa. The work they're doing couldn’t be more important. Barack and I will be cheering these #ObamaLeaders on!
These #ObamaLeaders understand there's tremendous power in collaboration! We cannot change the world alone. Today in Copenhagen they came together in small groups to present some of their best solutions to President Obama on topics like disinformation and climate change.
“How can we strengthen democracy at a time when divisions are all conspiring to pull societies and communities apart?” That's one of the the questions President Obama thought through with our #ObamaLeaders in Copenhagen last week. Take a look at their time together:
This #WomensHistoryMonth, we’re celebrating inspiring women—from #ObamaLeaders in our global network to trailblazers in male-dominated industries. We’ll also highlight women who were awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom by President Obama.
Over the past five days, I’ve been surrounded by a community of emerging leaders who have met each other with openness and embraced an opportunity to learn from each other. These #ObamaLeaders from across the Asia Pacific have given me so much hope for the world they will create.
President Barack Obama live at the #CDS2022: 'In this contest of ideas, it is not enough to say what we are against. We need to say what we are for. If democracy is going to thrive, we will need to rebuild it so it works better for more people, for this new age.' #obamaleaders
Get to know our newest cohort of #ObamaLeaders! These changemakers from the Asia Pacific are addressing some of their communities' most pressing issues—and now they're coming together as a tight-knit group to share ideas and build their leadership skills.
To lead is to serve. As their program concludes, #ObamaLeaders from across Africa collaborated on service projects in their local communities, reaching over 4,500 people. Find more about their incredible work at obama.org/updates/leader…
