Event description
The 2019 two day conference put on by the Yale Association for African Peace and Development.

About this Event

The aim of the conference is to put all of us in conversation about ways in which we can all dedicate our lives and careers towards development and peace on the continent. The conference will address our theme through keynote speeches, moderated panels, workshops, a career fair, cultural events, and more.

Our first panel, Sexuality, Gender and Society in Africa, seeks to address womanhood, masculinity, sexuality, LGBTQ+ representation and equality in society. While many African nations are even more advanced than Western nations in terms of equality and rights for LGBTQ+ people, we still have a long way to go in terms of gender equality and sexual freedom in our societies.

Our second panel is focused on Healthcare and Technology on the continent. In addition to addressing the healthcare and medical issues facing Africa, this panel will also focus on reversing Brain Drain in Africa.

The third panel will address Different Mediums of Activism to inspire change in Africa. This panel will explore different mediums of activism: television, art, social media, disruption as activism, and more.

Finally, our fourth panel will address the Future of Economic Growth in Africa. This panel will address the economic state of affairs across the continent, unemployment levels, job creation, entrepreneurship, foreign investments, and more. What is our role in contributing to the Economic landscape in Africa?
