30 Black Stars is an initiative created by Face2face Africa to highlight and celebrate the achievements and impact of African, African-American, and Caribbean-American business and professional leaders in the United States. Each year, we identify and honor 30 outstanding professionals, across all industries, who have distinguished themselves and are paving a way for minorities through a commitment to excellence.


The Black Stars Conference is designed to facilitate empowering discussions around diversity and inclusion and advancing the leadership pipeline for minority professionals. The forum will empower attendees with the tools and resources they need to increase their capacity, and examine what companies are doing to cultivate a more inclusive culture to harness the strengths and full potential of professionals within ethnic communities. The conference concludes with the awards gala to honor the 30 Achievers.
