 ABOUT THE WEBCHAT
On March 8th at 9:30am EST, the Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships (S/GP) and the Bureau of African Affairs at the U.S. Department of State — alongside its International diaspora Engagement Alliance (IdEA) program — will host #DiasporaVoices, a live-streamed interactive opportunity for diaspora communities to engage with top diplomats and entrepreneurs via social media.

We will discuss the importance of promoting entrepreneurship in Africa, which is one of the best ways to boost Africa’s economic growth, spur development and reduce poverty. It will also help bridge diaspora initiatives with those taking place within the U.S. government.

This interactive webchat aims to explore how African diaspora groups can partner with the United States in fostering entrepreneurship and inclusive economic growth in their countries of heritage by forging connections, coordinating resources, collaborating on programs, gaining media exposure and more. Diaspora communities provide a strong and valuable link between the U.S. and countries all over the world.

Participants may tweet questions and comments before and during the chat, using the hashtag #DiasporaVoices.
   Consider this your invitation to sit at the table with leadership from the Bureau of African Affairs and other speakers including:

     Public Affairs Officer, U.S. Embassy Lusaka, Zambia, Janet Deutsch

Your question could be featured in an interactive chat session, addressing leveraging diaspora groups to spur entrepreneurship and inclusive economic growth.  

To join the conversation, go to [share.america.gov/diaspora-voices-africa] on March 8th at 9:30AM EST/ 14:30 UTC.
