OUR ANNUAL EVENTS
D.L. JOHNSON CONSULTING AGENCY has created events for our clients that generate an awareness about their organizations, products, mission and goals. We have also created three signature events for our company that embody the mission and goals of D.L. Johnson Consulting Agency to empower African Americans and women around the world. Our signature events are the Georgia Africa Connection Week held in Atlanta, Georgia that focuses on the connectivity of Africa through art, culture and business, the Global Black History Honors event that awards black people from around the world during Black History Month celebrated in the USA and the Women's Empowerment Sunday Brunch held during the Black Caucus Foundation Annual Legislative Conference in Washington, D.C. These events allow D.L. Johnson Consulting Agency to grow from the Southern United States to rest of the globe.
GEORGIA AFRICA CONNECTION WEEK
Through a collaborative effort of DL Johnson Consulting Agency, Georgia State House Representative Sandra G. Scott and E-Learning Consult (a Nigerian virtual education company) the Georgia Africa Connection Week was created to connect Georgia and Africa through art, culture and business. The partnership brought together Ambassadors, elected officials, governmental agencies, non profits, small businesses and global leaders for an entire week of events that showcased the investment opportunities in Georgia and in Africa. Our local and international sponsors like MnC Group of Companies from Ghana West Africa and the workshop by the US EXIM Bank from Washington, D.C. for example are the types of education and resources that this annual event provided and is the beginning of building a global partnership for development of culture, art and business with Africa and Georgia.
GLOBAL BLACK HISTORY HONORS
Created by the CEO Ms. Davisha L. Johnson this inaugural event was created as a celebration of Black people from around the world that have worked to improve and empower their communities. In the United States, Black people are stereotyped and used for our economic and political power but not recognized for our innovation, survival, ingenuity or resilience. Black people abroad are stereotyped and used for their natural resources and labor but not recognized for their innovation, survival, ingenuity or resilience. We have more things in common but have been systematically separated for generations from our brothers and sisters. Therefore, the Global Black History Honors was created to celebrate OUR economic power, political power, innovation, survival, ingenuity, resilience, natural resources and labor during the most celebrated month for Black History in the United States which is February during Black History Month.
