Africa and the Diaspora come together for one virtual summit to plot our path to greatness and go beyond the year of return.
Africa is set to be empowered this season by a collective of tastemakers from across multiple industries at another edition of ‘The Thread ‘
The Thread is a virtual community event that’ll keep you inspired, entertained, and prepared for the possibilities ahead.
The Thread is a gathering of leaders, makers, and doers in Africa and throughout the diaspora sharing resources, strategies, and best practices for thriving and winning together in a post COVID-19 era.
No need to spend $1,000 on travel or take time off, come with your passion, love and desire to learn and connect with people committed to Pan-African approaches to success and well-being.
The event will feature world class speakers covering industries like art, tech, finance, entertainment, spirituality, and more.
There will be Virtual 1:1 video speed networking sessions, a virtual expo for black businesses, and community generated breakouts.
A moderated live chat runs throughout the event making sure you’re apart of the conversation.
DJ Young Wavy Fox will be spinning a diasporic set with afrobeats, hip hop, trap, reggae, baile funk, grime, and more
