We are expecting more than 500 attendees—members, exhibitors, industry partners, and their guests—to join us for a relaxed and lively evening! The event will be opened with a performance by Batalá Washington, the all-women Afro-Brazilian Samba Reggae band. The event continues with our program—hosted by Eric Walker, one of Humentum’s founders and currently the CFO at Population Council—that honors the Humentum community past, present, and future, and also includes our annual Excellence Awards Ceremony. 

Featuring a performance by Amadou & Mariam!

This Grammy Award-nominated “Afro-Pop” musical duo from Mali has an international fan base that requires no translation to enjoy their legendary shows. Get ready to dance as we close out our celebration dinner with a live performance by these special guests.
