Following the workshop on Youth Employment, African Policy Dialogue Ghana is hosting a workshop titled ‘Private Sector Driven Solutions for youth employment in Ghana’, focusing on identifying durable solutions from the private sector to address youth employment in Ghana. Participating private sector players will strengthen their knowledge on the employment landscape in Ghana while sharing their valuable perspective and getting the opportunity to network through the various presentations and the attending participants. Partners for this event are Nestlé Ghana and the Netherlands Embassy in Ghana. The input gathered during the workshops will feed into the policy brief that will be presented to policy makers in public and private institutions both in Ghana and in the Netherlands.
