Masterclass for Young African Professionals
Are you a young professional or student of African descent living in Belgium?
Are you passionate about leadership and positive change in your community?
Then apply to participate in this intensive one-day workshop.

The Masterclass for Young African Professionals is a joint initiative of L.Arena and the Embassy of Ghana in Brussels with the objective to bring together young professionals of African descent for a stimulating and empowering workshop on leadership. The event is a continuation of L.Arena's philosophy of creating a space where young professionals can interact, exchange ideas, as well as engage with high-profile experts. Moreover, the workshop is in line with the Diaspora Engagement Policy of the Republic of Ghana (2020), which among other things, highlights the need to build capacity, develop and sustain transnational networks for knowledge transfer and collaborations among the diaspora. This African cohort is a follow-up to the European cohort, which was under the auspices of L.Arena. The two cohorts will, therefore, serve as a platform to facilitate networking and multicultural engagements among the young professionals from the two continents. Selected applicants will participate in an intensive one-day workshop that will be hosted at the Embassy. The workshop will feature a keynote address by an African in the Diaspora with exceptional leadership experience as well as a leadership training session that combines corporate and athletic values for excellent performance.

The workshop is open to young professionals or graduate students of African descent, between the ages of 23 – 35, who are passionate about leadership and are ready to create positive and sustainable change in their communities.
