A couple weekends ago, I had a blast at a Dine Diaspora event that focused on connecting folks of African descent. We had a delicious meal prepared by Chef Dadisi Olutosin, and discussed Africa’s leadership challenges among other issues. The diversity of backgrounds among the participants was cool to see. There was a restaurateur, an investment banker, a diplomat, and an owner of a corporate gifting business, to name a few.
What was so powerful about the dinner was the manner in which it brought together a group of people who spend a good bit of their time doing stuff to contribute to Africa’s economic development. We need more dinners like this, where people can contribute their perspectives on Africa’s development, and how they are contributing.
Kudos to the Dine Diaspora team, and I look forward to the next time I get to attend.
