Description

Panelist on "pertinent issues in STEM relative to our continent"
The panel seeks to assess the status quo of STEM in its multifaceted nature and impact in Africa on health, energy, infrastructure, climate change to name just a few. The discussion will look at the current gaps in the role of STEM towards making an impact and positively changing the current state of the continent. The avenues to start or continue exploring - collective efforts scientists can contribute towards continental development whether at an individual, grassroots or organizational level. Most importantly the attitude that African scientists in the diaspora or at home should adopt in order to ensure the continent stays abreast with the fast-paced global world especially towards sustainability. The panel aims to challenge the audience to start thinking of ways to anchor themselves in policy, entrepreneurial, leadership and development roles where measurable and real impact is noticed.
