Join us on Tuesday 12 February 2019 at the Connecting Diaspora UK Networking Event "Diaspora professionals in development and humanitarian spaces" co-hosted by Shabaka, the African Foundation for Development (AFFORD) and SOAS University of London. Connecting Diaspora UK is a networking event for diaspora professionals working in the development and humanitarian sectors. The aim is to build a constituency of African and Middle Eastern diaspora professionals to increase diversity in these sectors and facilitate collaborations between international organisations and the diaspora.

If you’re:

  • Diaspora/migrant from Africa, Near and the Middle East regions
  • Working or interested in international development and humanitarian sectors
  • Seeking to connect with those with similar interests in international development and humanitarian response
  • Seeking to gain an insight into the role and potential of diaspora communities in peace, development and humanitarian response

Then join us for this informal network event and build and strengthen new relationships!
