This year we present to you ‘The Diaspora
Drive’. Diasporans are a group of people
who migrate from their ancestral homeland
to another land but maintain active
communications between them. More than
3% of the world’s populations are migrants
and although they are scattered globally,
the technological boom has provided
affordable transport and communication
binding them more closely together than
ever before. Over 180 million Diasporans
across the globe come from Africa, and
12.9% are from Ghana alone.
The diaspora communities contributes more
money to the continent through remittance
than money received through Western Aid.
Therefore it is vital that we continue to think
about how Ghana can tap into the diaspora
and allow them to contribute back home.
What better way to support those coming
back home, than to provide them with jobs
and networking opportunities?
The Diaspora Drive will provide a platform
for both international and local employers to
network with potential employees. There will
be over 20 companies from various
industries that are actively looking for talent
with international education and/or work
Industries that will be represented include
Banking and Finance, Investment,
Hospitality, Medical, Agriculture, Food
be a breakout session for both candidates
and employers to register with LX HR
Solutions. You’ll also have the chance to
enter our grand raffle with three amazing
mystery prices, all proceeds go to charity.
We thank you for your endless support and
look forward seeing you there!
