GDW enables an inclusive and focused series of events – events that are self-driven and self-organized by diaspora communities and other interested groups. With diaspora communities and organizations at the reins, GDW spotlights the organizations and initiatives themselves, the work they do and the issues that they feel are important. Anyone—individuals or organizations—can participate in Global Diaspora Week, whether hosting a formal conference or meet up at a coffee shop, attending an event, and everything in between.
