About the event

A continuous forum that gives the necessary platform for members to discuss ideas, present findings, debate on policy relevant points which contribute to the development and democratization of Ethiopia. With this in mind, the Ethiopian Professionals Association in Southern Africa (EthPASA) holds its very first online forum on 24 October 2020 via Zoom.

The prime objective is to maintain the network among various Ethiopian professions to work together by taking into account challenges, opportunities and issues specific to the present context. All Ethiopian professionals in Southern Africa as well as professionals collaborating with them are invited to participate to this event.

The expected results of this forum are based on three points:

1. The establishment of a regular Forum

2. Encouragement of Ethiopian professionals to work together

3. Team formation
