Hello! My name is Lillian and I am Managing Partner at CareerBox. My primary responsibility is to drive the expansion of CareerBox into other cities and countries within Africa. I work collaboratively with the leadership to deliver on the vision to transform CareerBox into a provider and industry agnostic institution. My goal is to establish CareerBox as the premier talent incubator in key markets within Africa. By doing so, we accelerate the growth of our economies and contribute to Africa’s transformational agenda.
Prior to joining CareerBox, I spent seven years at the Rockefeller Foundation implementing and scaling global programmes that harnessed the power of technology for greater social and economic outcomes. My thematic expertise includes youth workforce development, digital literacy and inclusion, public health, women’s economic empowerment, energy poverty and supporting local entrepreneurs in order to boost the economic security of communities. I have spent many years working in South Africa and other amazing countries. I was born in Kenya but am based in New York City.
