Salma is the Interim CEO and board member of the UNDP founded African Impact Investing Taskforce, Impact@Africa, which was formed to address the crosscutting challenges facing impact investment in Africa and is responsible for establishing the network across Africa. In her previous role as Managing Director of impact advisory services consultancy, GreaterImpact & GreaterCapital, she provided development advisory and grant management services focused specifically on sector building, impact measurement and impact assessments. She was also responsible for growing the Southern African Impact Investing Network (SAIIN) to become a leading platform for knowledge sharing on impact investing in Southern Africa.
More recently, Salma has been consulting to a number of local and international development agencies, higher education institutions and non-profit organisations across sub-Saharan Africa and has access to a global network of institutions and individuals that play a significant role in driving socio-economic development in Africa. Although she has worked in a number of sectors, her key areas of interest are education, skills development and job creation. She is passionate about working with likeminded people to build a sustainable and inclusive global economy.
