This year’s event will be hosted by the Berla Mundi, moderated by Bianca Buckman and Christabel Dadzie, founder of Ahaspora. The event will be sure to draw crowds of diaspora professionals from around the world and participants will be treated to several success stories from fellow trailblazing diasporans who have relocated and are creating trailblazing paths in their respective industries.
Speakers include Claudia Lumor, the Founder and CEO of Glitz Africa, Yaw Afriyie Amoteng, the Managing Director of Elmina Advisory, Nana Ama Botchway, Lawyer and founder of N. Dowuona & Co, Darren Brown the Head of Business Development and Procurement with the Kwarlyez Group and many more.
Diaspora Drive 2019 and ‘The Year of Return’ will be commemorating the 400 year-anniversary of the Trans-Atlantic Slave trade and providing opportunites for Africans in the diaspora to reconnect with their past and take advantage of the the numerous opportunities Ghana has to offer.
Lending his support to the course of The Diaspora Drive 2019, His Excellency, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, President of the Republic of Ghana noted, “Our responsibility is to charter a path which is about how we develop our nation’s ourselves.”
He further emphasized that, “The destiny of all Black people in the world is bound up with Africa. A performing Africa elevates the status of all black people around the world. A non-performing Africa continues the situation where black people around the world are looked down on.”
There are over 180 million Diasporas across the globe who come from Africa, 13% come from Ghana alone. According to the African Union (AU), diasporas consists of people who are of native African origin living outside the continent, irrespective of their citizenship and nationality.
It is on record so far that the diaspora communities have made significant contributions to the progress of their living countries especially through remittance. It has become imperative for Ghana to turn the sad reality of brain drain to brain gain by identifying ways in which our people can contribute back home.
Undoubtedly, this is an opportune time for Ghana to invest in disporans, especially those who are fully committed to the development of Africa. For those seeking to return and contribute in even greater capacity it is critical that jobs and business opportunities are available. It is on the premise of this that the Diaspora Drive 2019 seeks to provide returnees with the support they require.
In looking forward to Diaspora Drive 2019, Lexy Boahene, CEO of LX HR Solutions states, “my focus is to assist returnees both abroad and locally to feel at home when they arrive on the continent, I want to provide a marketplace that will support the needs of diasporans holistically.”
