AAF "Back to Africa" Initiative

The global nature of AAF speaks not only to African Americans venturing out across the world to work in GE businesses, but also to finding opportunities to identify talent in the diaspora to lead GE businesses in their home countries. GE has proven its global-centric commitment with AAF at the vanguard of that effort. Our “Back to Africa” initiative leverages the network to inspire African American talent interested in returning to the continent.
