This year, Applause Africa, an innovative media brand for progressive Africans in the diaspora, will host the African Diaspora Awards Nov 30 in New York City to celebrate and honor entrepreneurial, philanthropic and leadership achievements from within the African diaspora community.

To kick off the awards, Applause is hosting its first annual ADA United Nations Ambassadorial Tour in partnership with the United Nations Association SNY (UNA-SNY) for Young Professionals Nov. 7. The tour will include networking and professional development lessons for professionals to visit three African-based Permanent Missions in New York City.

“The goal of the ADA Ambassadorial Tour will be complimentary of Applause Africa and UNA-SNY Young Professionals efforts to inspire young African professionals in the Diaspora to achieve their highest potential by creating a pathway for them to become involved with the Missions objectives in the UN,” representatives of Applause said in a statement. “We also believe that the tour will assist the Permanent Mission to actively engage with the African Youth in Diaspora about programs and policies of their organization. This tour serves as our way of connecting the civil society of the African Diaspora to the people in authority.”

Applause Africa and UNA-SNY Young Professionals strongly believes that it is important to connect the young Africa leaders of today in order to inspire leaders of tomorrow.
