The fifth edition of Africa Communications Week kicks off this week bringing together Africa-focused communications professionals in over 20 cities across Africa and Europe to discuss how the communications profession can strengthen Africa’s transformation agenda.
From May 24th – 28th 2021, communicators will gather for a series of hybrid conferences, masterclasses and roundtable discussions on “Changing perceptions on Africa: now what?”
Africa Communications Week is a premier gathering for communications professionals and thought leaders looking to impact the current narratives on Africa and is open to all communications professionals with an expertise/interest in Africa, from African countries and across the globe.
This year’s edition features over 60 speakers including Ahunna Eziakonwa, UNDP Regional Director for Africa who will be speaking on the topic of the development narrative in a session moderated by Uzo Madu, Founder What’s in it for Africa on Wednesday, May 26th at 1pm WAT.
Results show that narratives surrounding Africa have an impact on the socio-economic development of the continent, Africa-focused communicators must therefore be strategic about shaping a narrative that is so vital to the transformation of the continent.
“Africa’s transformation begins with the many stories we choose to tell – and those stories must be told with our voices. Africa’s reputation has a bottom-line effect. It impacts everything from investments to exports, foreign policies, or – as starkly demonstrated in the past year – public health communicators,” says ACW co-founder Annie Mutamba.
