Icons such as Nelson Mandela and Malcolm X have long-served as advocates for policies championing inclusivity, diversity and social equity, particularly among underserved populations. While their legacies continue to inspire resilience and empowerment within the global community, the imperative now lies in equipping today’s youth with the social education and mindset to effect transformative change. The GBIS panel will explore strategies and initiatives aimed at building confidence, resilience and leadership skills in young individuals.

On the entrepreneurial front, business leaders including Pravini Baboeram, Co-Founder of 7th Gen Creatives, Lashai Ben Salmi, Co-Founder of Hallyu Con, and Tray Sean Ben Salmi, Founder of Influencer Publishing&Financial Education for Teens, will serve as speakers on the panel, instilling ambition among aspiring entrepreneurs and business owners. In this regard, GBIS 2024 will shed light on the role of mentorship and positive role models in unlocking the full potential of the next generation.

Taking place under the theme, Black Excellence: Unleashing the Unexplored Potential for Global Unity, GBIS 2024 aims to foster connections among individuals and business leaders not only within the Black community, but worldwide. The summit serves as a unique, multisectoral platform that seeks to establish best practices for driving the next generation forward, while celebrating diversity, excellence and innovation in the process.
