New Initiative

Disruptive Dev Radio Initiative

Researchers, practitioners, and advocates are increasingly leveraging mediums for large-scale communication. It is becoming a necessity to receive media outreach training and support to advance policy priorities.

However, with the dominance of media monopolies, certain voices are being limited and access to relevant platforms is sometimes hard to obtain. Enter Disruptive Dev Radio, an initiative by Leaders of Africa and the Leaders of Africa Institute.

Disruptive Dev Radio is a platform for original audio and video content in recorded and live format. With informative, evidence-driven, and progressive programming, Disruptive Dev Radio seeks to amplify the voices of researchers, practitioners, and advocates with the intention of promoting inclusive and equitable development. Using a decentralized network of content producers, there is unity of purpose and message.
