    GLOBAL AFRICAN AND DIASPORA LEADERSHIP TELEFORUM

    in Education

    In an effort to build consensus across the Global African Diaspora around strategies for cooperating and coordinating, CFA collaborates with African Views to facilitate a conference call of Diaspora leaders in the Western Hemisphere, as part of the 2014 Ronald H. Brown African Affairs Series.  While time, distance and travel resources have proven to be significant obstacles in the coordination of Diaspora in support of Africa, this effort can bridge the gap, by holding the first of several conference calls of Diaspora leaders around the globe to open and strengthen dialogue. 


    Synopsis of intent:


    To formalize the platform where experts and professionals in Africa and Diaspora can collaborate with their immense intellect, expertise, skills, ideas and other resources necessary to develop and design the optimal solutions for bridging and amplifying the economic and scientific gaps between Africa and the rest of the world.



    Expected Outcome


    To form alliance of strength and interest between the Diaspora and Africa, as well as to cultivate a collaborative global communication platform for reliable and well guided intelligence committees that will liaise directly with institutional partners, essential state holders and sovereign authorities on African development issues.

    QUINTESSENTIAL AFRICAN PRESS CORPS MEETING

    in Radio

    This forum is in three parts. Each part is scheduled for one hour. The first part will address the challenges faced by the African Press in doing our work domestically and internationally. Part two, will validate the challenges as legitimate problems because some of our colleagues are often just ranting or confused and in some cases prosecuted for publishing false or defamatory information. Part three will provide us with opportunity to offer our views and ideas on ways and means of strengthening the status of the African press in domestically and around the world.
