Amini Kajunju, Africa America Institute President and CEO

Amini Kajunju, born in the Democratic Republic of Congo is the Africa America Institute (AAI) President and CEO.

Kajunju is the first African woman to ever serve at the helm of the oldest nonprofit organization of its kind in the United States.

Kajunju joined AAI in October 2012 from the New York-based Workshop in Business Opportunities (WIBO), a non-profit organization whose mission is to educate, train and inspire under-resourced entrepreneurs in the Tri-State Area of New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, where she served as executive director for 10 years.

Under her leadership, Kajunju bolstered the organization’s programming and served more entrepreneurs than any other institution of a similar size in New York City.

Kajunju helped to start AngelAfrica, an organization engaged in promoting private sector development in Africa and networking opportunities for African professionals in the Diaspora.

Prior to WIBO, Kajunju served as a program manager at the International Executive Service Corps (IESC), an organization providing free consulting services to businesses in developing countries.

At IESC, Kajunju recruited and managed US volunteer experts who assisted small- to medium- businesses in the fisheries, clothing, and mining industries in Southern Africa.

An entrepreneurial leader with strategic, fiscal, organizational and mentoring skills, Kajunju worked in program positions at the Social Science Research Council, Center for Humanitarian Outreach and Intercultural Exchange, and The Carter Presidential Center.

Kajunju holds a Bachelors of Arts Degree in International Relations with an emphasis on economic development from Brigham Young University and a Masters degree in Public Administration with a concentration in finance and management from New York University.

Kajunju assumed the role of AAI President and CEO on October 2012.
