Two Days of Powerful Discussions
November 3rd - 4th
We are bound by a common thread that connects us to our beautiful continent. As we reflect on the last 20 years of building an African community at Columbia, our journey has been one of resilience, courage, and tenacity. Despite the differences that separate us, we remain united by our shared history, culture, and identity. It is incumbent upon us to recognize the power and potential that lie in strengthening our ties.
Our 20th annual conference is a testament to the power of unity, where Africans dispersed across the globe come together to explore, share, and amplify the potential embedded in our collective experiences. The theme, "Strengthening Our Ties," encapsulates the essence of our journey – rekindling bonds, fostering collaboration, and igniting the flames of progress.
ABOUT COLUMBIA AFRICON
The Columbia Africa Conference is a student-led collaboration between Columbia Business School, Columbia Engineering, and the Columbia School of International and Public Affairs. Over the last 20 years, we have provided a forum for meaningful engagement and thought-provoking discussions. This year, you’ll hear from an impressive lineup of speakers from across the continent and we expect participants to leave with a renewed sense of hope for Africa’s success and to be inspired to do their part in moving the continent forward.
