PHI is pleased to collaborate with Desta Black Youth Network to launch Desta Bx (Desta Black Experience) on September 12th. This quarterly event will provide an opportunity for members of the Black community to come together to share their stories and life experiences and to enrich the conversation around current issues.

Presented by DESTA Black Youth Network, this first discussion will be moderated by Nantali Indongo, host of CBC's The Bridge. In the form of a round table conversation, it will focus on the idea of success and the different paths experienced by the Black community.

The discussion begins at 2:00 PM and will be followed by a networking period between 3:30 PM and 5:30 PM for the public present at the PHI Centre. Please note that only the discussion will be broadcasted online.
