Thank You to our Lead Event Sponsor

Being a young person within the Black community in Canada in 2020…what are the prospects for the future? Is the situation encouraging going forward? Have there been setbacks related to the pandemic? And how does this community differ from its US counterpart? There are a lot of questions that need answers, and now more than ever before people are starting to think strategically and in long-term perspectives that will hopefully provide more opportunities and options for young Black Canadians.


This panel will offer a vision for youth leadership in our country within the context of the Black communities. The key areas of focus will include employment and employability prospects, education and the urgency of intergenerational collaboration. This is a not-to-be-missed event for anyone who is in the workplace and wants to envisage a way forward for Black youth in Canada that is promising and provides hope and incentive for the future.
