African Caribbean Leaders invited to Inaugural Forum

EVENT: Inaugural Forum

ON FRIDAY April 27th, the African-Caribbean Alumni Network (A-CAN) is hosting the Inaugural ACS Leaders Forum at City Hall, home of the Mayor of London.

Launched in late 2017, A-CAN was created to bring together 10,000’s of black professionals who were previously members of an African Caribbean Society (ACS) at any UK university. Patrons include Shadow Home Secretary Diane Abbott and Conservative Party Vice Chair Helen Grant.

Through various activities, including running the largest debate tour in the UK, A-CAN have built up the largest community of African Caribbean professionals in the UK. The organisation will act as a UK version of a fraternity for former ACS members and those seeking to support the progression of the UK’s African Caribbean communities.

Highlights include:

* Over 20,000 past and present ACS members, many who are now leaders in their respective fields.
* University ACS’ sitting under one official umbrella body representing the voice of black students and professionals from over 100 Higher Education institutions.
* Links with corporate cultural networks that provide a direct link to mentors and role models.

Samuel Kasumu, Founder of A-CAN said: “Now is the time to use collective experiences to help progress Briton’s black community. April 27th, for the first time in history will unite past and present ACS Presidents and committee members together to kick-start a programme of events this year.”
