She explains, "By bridging the gap between Africa and its Diaspora through a 3-tiered approach of economic development through education and small scale investment, social impact work through NGOs, and political inclusion and advocacy, we can capture the ENTIRE African Diaspora. Then, we can actualize creating new opportunities for collaboration and mutual growth for ALL African descendants. This will further strengthen the position of Africa on the global stage."

Dr. Rutendo Hwindingwi, Founding Advisor of Tribe Africa Advisory, will be presenting on navigating business strategies in Africa with a focus on Agenda 2063.
