CQ Africa Summit 2023
A Catalyst for Social Justice
A partnership event between Cultural Intelligence Africa and the Cultural Intelligence Center
The CQ Africa Summit will be an unique opportunity to gain new insights, network with like-minded individuals, and celebrate the legacy of Nelson Mandela. As you may know, Mandela Day is a global call to action that encourages people to make a positive difference in their communities. This year, Mandela Day is unique in that it is set to take place the same time we will be commemorating 10 years since his death and it would have been his 105th birthday.
At the CQ Africa Summit, you will hear from keynote speakers and participate in interactive sessions that cover a range of topics related to cultural intelligence, diversity, and global leadership with a particular focus on the relationship between CQ & Social Justice. You will also have the chance to connect with other attendees, share your experiences, and build new relationships.
Here are some of the highlights of the Africa CQ Summit:
- Visits to Soweto, Apartheid Museum, the Constitutional Court, Mandela’s house and office.
- Interactive sessions that cover a range of topics related to CQ.
- Opportunities to strengthen relationships within the CQ community from around the world.
- A CQ update on the trends, research, and solutions globally.
- The chance to celebrate and learn from the life and legacy of Nelson Mandela.
