Shaun O’Dili and Solomon Adebiyi were invited by U.S Embassy’s Acting Ambassador, Lewis Lukens, to a discussion on youth, diversity and the future of work.
They discussed efforts to address the challenges marginalized youth face by supporting entrepreneurism and soft skill development. They were joined by other representatives from youth organizations and young activists that work on these issues.
Shaun said “Attending the youth and diversity event at wychood house was a truly insightful and inspiring experience. Being able to network with people that have a passion for developing the youth of today to ensure a brighter tomorrow and for increasing diversity in the workplace enabled me to truly appreciate the power of youth and importance of diversity.”
