From the producers of the FA.C.E List Awards, celebrating Africans committed to excellence, comes another exciting and refreshing initiative that seeks to promote collaboration within the Diaspora. Face2face Africa, the fastest growing African focused online magazine, announced today that they are launching a new initiative called “I Am a Professional African,” a series of networking mixers that will further enhance the company’s mission of restoring Africa’s image.
The “I Am a Professional African” events are a series of mixers targeting professionals and are designed with the goal of bringing Africans of all professional backgrounds, friends of Africa, and leaders within the community together for the opportunity to network, mix and mingle, and find common ways of working together for the betterment of the continent of Africa.
The event will be hosted quarterly in different parts of the country and each will feature specific professional fields ranging from medicine and health related professions, education, media and entertainment, to fashion, law, business and entrepreneurship, hospitality, non-profit, and many more.
