Speaking with Mahlet Mairegu one of the founding organisors she states;

“Although we have conducted a similar event in the past, the idea of doing it again came from a stakeholders meeting held in January 2013. With the job market forced to change drastically after the global economic crisis of 2008, we all have had to re-think our career paths. Thus learning form those who have achieved their career goals can help us guide our plans for the future in view of the recent changes in the job market”

She goes on the explain why such events like these are important to the Ethiopian Community in London particular for young students and youths;

“More importantly as a community we do not have a space to see and engage Ethiopians who have achieved their career goals in a variety of sectors. And thus we strongly believe that it is by meeting and hearing from someone from a similar background that have achieve a chosen career that we can start breeding a can do attitude for our whole community in general and for the next generation in particular.”

Activities on the day will include:
