AfroX - The New Conventional
Thu. 6 April 2017, 6:30 pm – 9:30 pm AEST
Does the absence of experienced guidance, representation and drive in your life disrupt you from actually pursuing your own unconventional career path? Perhaps the preconceived dreams that your African parents and relatives have of you excelling in that degree you’re currently enrolled in and obtaining a career in law, medicine, accounting and engineering no longer interests you.
AfroX – The New Conventional is a free event that will showcase the success of 5 unique African-Australian speakers.
Receive valuable tips and tricks from some of the brightest, boldest and most brilliant minds that have taken an alternative career path that has led them to their idea of success. Join us as they share the wealth of knowledge and expertise received from their industries.
