About

Afro Global Connect is a global platform founded by Thione Niang with the prime of connecting Afro descendant leaders across the globe. The idea came into life after Thione Niang’s world tour in 2021 in Europe, Brazil, Colombia, Canada, US, France, Brussels, Switzerland, etc...He noticed the similarities in culture and the need to unify us in a platform to network and create innovative and business opportunities globally. This will help Fostering growth and new ideas amongst members by helping support existing projects amongst members and our respective communities.

Transforming relationships and ideas. Incredible mix of preeminent leaders, passionate Afro descendants change-makers and rising stars of all ages. More than a conference: invitation-only, off-the-record for Leaders and Change makers from Afro Descendants around the world.

The challenges before us are profound. Some may say impossible. But AGN reimagines what’s possible with bold ideas through unify. We will work to showcase the best of our diaspora globally and work to support policy makers on policies that affect the Afro descendant communities. AGN strengthens Afro descendants place in the world. Together, we can reshape history.
