Power of Inclusion: What is the Fuss About!


Council of Nigerian Professionals Inc. (CNP)

Presents: The Maiden Edition of Power of Inclusion: What is the fuss about!

A Three (3) day event, starting on Thursday - Saturday, December 2nd-4th, 2021


‘Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth.”- Jesse Jackson


There has been a lot of discussion around inclusion, yet here we are.

After the August 28,1963 speech of Martin Luther King Jr. during the match in Washington for jobs and freedom… I have a dream...who would have thought that we’ll still be here?


It took double tragic incidents in 2020 to bring the need for inclusivity to the forefront again. Covid-19 gave the world a reset button, and the death of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, may his soul Rest in Peace, brought inclusion back to the forefront.


This is a discussion that affects the world and humanity. It is a call for you, for me, for everyone, that knows that Systemic Anti-Black Racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia and more destroys; and wants to see a new dawn of change.


Outstanding and Distinguished Keynote Speaker panelists will be available to share their view on each day
