Leonie Industries Employees Win USAID/DEVEX Development Essay Contest

In December of 2011, USAID and DEVEX launched an essay contest, putting out a call for innovative and insightful ideas on the future of development. They received hundreds of submissions from development professionals on topics including the role of democracy, using technology to improve service delivery, and environmental pressures on the planet. Two of Leonie Industries ’ employees, Glen Scott Allen and Michael Joseph, submitted an essay entitled “Global Tech + Local Trust: A Formula for Sustainable Development” which was chosen as one of only six winners.

Their essay will be published in the May issue of USAID’s Frontiers in Development, to coincide with the high-profile USAID Frontiers in Development conference at Georgetown University in June, 2012. The conference and publication aim to strengthen the analysis, design, and implementation of programs and policies aimed at fostering development and reducing poverty in developing countries.

Other contributors to the publication will include Bill Gates (co-founder of Microsoft and The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation); Ellen Johnson Sirleaf (Liberian President); Paul Collier (Oxford University professor, economist and author of “The Bottom Billion: Why the Poorest Countries are Failing and What Can Be Done About It”); Admiral James Stavridis (NATO’s Supreme Allied Commander and Head of U.S. European Command); and Indra Nooyi (Chairwoman and CEO of PepsiCo Inc).

We congratulate Scott and Michael, and are pleased with the ever-increasing recognition of Leonie's capabilities in this area.
