The 2nd Annual Diaspora Dialogues International Women Of Power Luncheon took place on Saturday, March 9th in Los Angeles. The star-studded cultural affair was met with an overwhelming community response which further underscored the intention of Koshie Mills to cross pollinate African women from Africa with African American women in the Diaspora. Illustrious women of power and inspiration came from Africa, West Indies, UK, and America to attend. The diversity in the room created a magical environment of inclusion, where women of color from all around the world converged to celebrate sisterhood.
The afternoon was hosted by veteran Actress Wendy Raquel Robinson (ABC Grand Hotel, The Game). Five women who are trailblazers and trendsetters from various industries were honored; First Lady Of Sierra Leone, H.E. Fatima Maada Bio, Actress and comedienne Tiffany Haddish, Actress Nomzamo Mbatha, Fashion Maven Actress Ryan Destiny, Cultural Activists Abrima Erwiah and Rosario Dawson.
This year the organization supported the Jenesse Center Inc. and Karen Earl C.E.O. of Jenesse Center Inc. delivered a powerful message highlighting their mission to provide victims of domestic violence a centralized base of support with awareness.
