World Afro Day - Workplace
This is the first global training day to create Afro hair inclusion for careers and business on 15th of September 2023, World Afro Day. This is a giant livestream and in-person event, inviting companies to kickstart global change and acceptance of Afro hair.
World Afro Day - Workplace is leading the global charge in September and the UK government has already recognised Afro hair discrimination in the Inclusive Britain Report. New employer research will be released and training will address the gaps in knowledge about Afro hair discrimination.
Your company could be at the forefront of change and be a part of our global UK movement with 1.5 billion estimated reach. World Afro Day CIC is supported by BUD Leaders their official training partner. This event will give your business the tools, training and support to end hair discrimination NOW. This is not a hair event, this is not a DEI event, this is a liberation movement for African descendants to 'be ourselves' in the workplace.
The event is hosted by TV Personality and Property Developer, Scarlette Douglas and Tashara Parker, an Emmy award-winning journalist and workplace authenticity advocate. Join our excellent speakers Entrpreneur Levi Roots, Financial Expert, Emmanuel Asuquo, Shift Insight CEO, Jane Powell, Olympian Alice Dearing, Barrister Laith Dilaimi, UK Professor Jonathan Wilson, US Professor Wendy Greene, US Professor Patti O'Brien Richardson and World Afro Day CEO, Michelle De Leon.
