Connecting with IBM’s Innovation Center, Chicago

YALI Fellows at the Innovation Center

Taking weekly site visits to a regional level, the team at the IBM Innovation Center (IIC) in Chicago hosted the Washington Fellows. Inside their beautiful space in the heart of Chicago’s Loop, the Fellows were treated to presentations about the IIC in Kenya, the IBM Academic Initiative, and data analytics.

YALI Fellows meet with Northwestern University Fellows

It was an added bonus to have a reunion of sorts: the Fellows attending the institute at Northwestern University joined us at the IIC! Here, Notre Dame South Africans connect with their fellow Northwestern South African.

Following this visit, the Fellows continued down Wacker Drive to PricewaterhouseCoopers, who engaged them in a lively discussion about creating change in Africa.
