Lauder Africa Futures Symposium

April 27 & 28, 2023

University of Pennsylvania

In-Person & Virtual

 Join us for the Lauder Institute’s Africa Futures Symposium 2023. This year’s theme, “Shifting Narratives,” is inspired by the work of many to recast how the story of Africa is told. We have, in turn, sought to identify keynote speakers and panel topics to allow us renewed exploration and critical inquiry into factors long deemed critical to the story of Africa and the future of the continent. Expect networking opportunities and multi-sectoral interdisciplinary conversations among a community of Africa-focused doers and thinkers who are making a difference.


April 27, 2023 | Keynote Presentation & Ambassadors’ Roundtable (In-Person & Virtual)

April 28, 2023 | Panel Discussions (In-Person Only)
