In March 2023, six Mandela Washington Fellowship Alumni attended the eighth annual African Diaspora Investment Symposium in Mountain View, California. The Symposium was organized by the African Diaspora Network, a non-profit organization bringing together a global network of Africans and friends of Africa to learn, engage, and co-create possibilities. Through this Fellowship-sponsored opportunity, these Alumni explored possibilities, connected, learned, and built bridges between Africans and African diasporans.
