*** THIS SESSION IS BY INVITATION. FOR SCHOOL-AGE CHILDREN ONLY ***

This will be a creative writing workshop aimed at children. We are specifically looking to address the lack of African authors and stories out there and accessibility to those stories.

Sharing our unique stories and seeing others who look like us in the media fosters a sense of belonging and connection that’s vital for us to feel included, appreciated and validated.

Right now we are looking at an African creative renaissance and it is important that we do not leave the children, our future, out of the movement. By sharing with them the skills and techniques of creative writing, we give birth to more thought narrative in this direction. We are empowering the next generation to dream about possibilities they may not have entertained or felt entitled to.

To grow this industry, we need more people with the skills. Let's lay the strong foundation now. It is time.

Largely across Africa inclusivity is not a priority, often entire communities are marginalized and discriminated against based on their tribe, gender, disability, age, and economic status. Today, the world has realised the importance of inclusion in the workplace and the community at large. However, Africa is still lagging behind in inclusive practices. The panel discussion will look at the use of technology to close the gap.

Our discussion will focus on:
[1] The use of technology in the workplace to ensure that everyone has carried along especially the disability community
[2] The use of digital tools in education to reach a larger number of unschooled children and aid learning for students with disability
[3] The use of digital tools to tell inclusive African stories to foster an inclusive community

At the end of the discussion:
[1] CEOs and Human Resources Managers will discover different digital tools to foster inclusion in the work place.
[2] Technology innovators will see opportunities in creating digital tools to promote inclusive learning.
[3] Creatives will understand the importance and benefits of telling inclusive stories.
