We maintain several professional Communities of Practice (CoPs) across the world. Meeting face-to-face regularly and talking through industry-wide challenges, these communities put peers in direct contact with their peers in the industry and foster communication, cooperation, knowledge sharing, and innovation.

Communities of Practice

Our CoPs are a core element of our capacity-building programmes. They are crucial to us achieving the broader impact and the systemic change we wish to have in markets where equity and inclusion are key to unlocking economic opportunities for those previously excluded.  

The CoPs support the development of the ecosystems in markets and we have now seen the establishment of several national associations, who are working with both the private and public sector to shape and progress national inclusion and equality agendas.  

If your location is not listed, you can join our global online Community of Practice – The League of Digital Finance Professionals. If you wish to start a community of practice in your location, please email Digital Frontiers Institute’s (DFI) Assistant Community Managers, Keneilwe Tsotsotso: keneilwe@digitalfrontiers.org and Nqobile Khumalo: nqobile@digitalfrontiers.org.
