PIC Management Executive Program

Who are we?

The Policy Innovation Centre (PIC) is Africa's first national institutionalised behavioural initiative. We support governments and stakeholders in making behaviorally informed decisions and generating evidence for impactful interventions in key areas:  Global Health, Education, Innovative Digital Solutions, Agriculture, Climate and Food Security, Poverty, Livelihoods, and Jobs, Governance, Gender Inclusion

Initiated by the Nigeria Economic Summit Group (NESG), and funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) in 2017, the PIC was launched in October 2021 after the success of the interim Policy Innovation Unit (PIU).

We provide evidence-driven, contextually relevant, and sustainable solutions to development issues through Behavioral Diagnostics, HumanCentered Design, and Sustainable Delivery.

Since 2009, the use of behavioural insights (BI) in public policy has spread globally. With over 400 BI entities worldwide, the PIC is pioneering national-level BI initiatives in Africa.


Whether it is redesigning governance to eradicate hunger or ending poverty through innovative digital solutions, we are excited to engage a creative and results-oriented Creative Content Writer with broad experience and a record of success (bachelor's and Master's degree holders) who wants to contribute to our vision of delivering better policies and innovative solutions for social impact. We value the opportunity to work with future leaders who want to grow personally and professionally and create impact in the social impact sector.
