Black Leaders in Global Development

FREE AND OPEN TO ALL: Join Our Black History Month Roundtable

In celebration of Black History Month, February’s roundtable will feature Black leaders in various sectors of global development to share their experiences, discuss the unique challenges they face, and foster a dialogue that encourages greater inclusivity and representation in global development initiatives.
