Rhoda Wilson to attend Global African Diaspora Summit in South Africa

The South African Government has invited Rhoda Wilson to attend the Global African Diaspora Summit founded by The African Union.

 
PRLog - May 23, 2012 - The South African Government has invited Rhoda Wilson to attend the Global African Diaspora Summit founded by The African Union. As a well-respected television talk show host of Nigerian origin, Rhoda is passionate about representing the African Diaspora in a positive and effective light.

The Global African Diaspora Summit takes place in a year that is historically significant to Africa. 2012 is the 10th anniversary of the launch of the African Union. It is also the year in which South Africa celebrated the centenary of the oldest liberation movement on the continent, the African National Congress.   South Africa’s hosting of the Global African Diaspora Summit is in line with its foreign policy objectives, which include its determination to consolidate the African Agenda and strengthen Pan-African solidarity.  The summit (May 23-25 2012) has a full programme of events to enhance the African Diaspora. The summit will consist of 54 African Heads of State, Presidents and Prime Ministers from the 16 Caribbean countries, as well as Presidents from Latin America with a high number of civil society leaders from the African Diaspora.

The theme of the Summit is: “Towards the Realisation of a United and Prosperous Africa and its Diaspora”.

The specific aims of the Summit are:

   To create sustainable partnerships between the African Diaspora and the African Continent through a realisable Programme-of-Action;
   To create sustainable dialogue, partnerships and strengthen Pan-African Solidarity, for a better Africa and her Diaspora; and
   To promote South-South cooperation.

It is no surprise that Rhoda has been invited as a special guest at this auspicious occasion. In 2012 Rhoda was shortlisted in the Wise Women Awards and the Women for Africa Awards for her services to Media in the UK. In 2009 Rhoda Wilson won “Best TV Presenter” at the BEFFTA Awards in London; a tremendous honour.   Rhoda was profiled in the media world of MIPTV in Cannes and AFRICAST in Abuja, Nigeria in 2010.  In 2011 Rhoda was listed as one of the top 20 most inspirational Women from the African Diaspora by ADIPWE, amongst some of the world’s most esteemed creatives, entrepreneurs and professionals.  In 2007 Rhoda Wilson founded the African and Caribbean Women’s Achievement and Leadership Foundation, another example of the formidable nature of Rhoda’s talents.  The foundation seeks to provide a platform for empowerment and engagement for Black and Ethnic Minority women across the UK. Her vision for success and positive media messages ensure that she has become a strong representative for leadership in the African Diaspora.
