In its 6th annual edition, the Pan-African Weekend is a multi-day event that highlights and celebrates the best of the pan-African community. The action-packed schedule includes the Pan-African Women Forum, the IAAPA Networking Mixer, and the closing Jazz Brunch.
The highlight of the weekend is the FACE List Awards, the most prestigious celebration of pan-African achievement in the Unites States, where pioneers and trailblazers of African descent are honored for their contributions and impact on society.
“The Pan-Weekend Weekend has given us the unique opportunity to tell a new narrative on people of African descent in this country and around the world. We are proud to have Prudential returning for the second consecutive year as presenting sponsor, and we are thrilled that Toyota will be joining them this year as co-Presenting Sponsor. Both companies have demonstrated their unyielding commitment to empowering and equipping members of our community with the tools and resources that we need to change our story”, said CEO of Face2face Africa Isaac.

Speaking on the partnership with Face2face Africa, Dorinda Walker, Prudential Financial’s Vice President of Consumer Strategy and Key initiatives said:
“Prudential’s ongoing sponsorship of Face2face Africa’s Pan-African Weekend is not just about discussing the type of financial services we provide. We’ve been able to share educational information with Pan-African community members on how to save, invest and reach their long-term financial goals. The attendees leave the Pan-African Weekend with Prudential top of mind, knowing that we are ready, willing, and able to work with them to achieve prosperity and peace of mind.”
This year, Toyota USA has also joined the Pan-African Weekend as the official auto sponsor.
