BarCamp Accra 2013 is a free networking event to bring people together for a day of discussion, demos and dialogue about Accra, Ghana and beyond. The event shall be held at the World Bank Office, Accra on December 23. The theme is “Exercising Ethics to Engineer Excellence”. This Barcamp hopes to assemble stakeholders to network, build a supportive enterprising community and partner to build together.
This Barcamp event will be the 28th organized by the GhanaThink Foundation, as it builds a network of young change makers, doers and entrepreneurs in Ghana.
BarCamp Accra 2013 will focus on corruption and ethics. It would highlight ethical leaders and ethics in every sphere of Ghanaian life. Corruption has been a big theme in Ghana this year, and a lot of us have read and listened to media reports in anger and disappointment. After the initial reactions fade away, we realize that attitudes of corruption and dishonesty are deeply entrenched in our society and we wonder what we can do about it as ordinary Ghanaians.

At Barcamp Accra, we intend to discuss, in interactive
panel sessions, issues of ethics, corruption and most importantly, how we can achieve excellence without being unethical. There will also be the popular speed mentoring sessions with many inspirational people. We'll cap off the day with breakout sessions. Some of our confirmed resource personnel are Shamima Muslim, +Nhyira Addo, +Benkoku Avle ( +Citi97.3FM & +CitiFM Fanpage), +Kwame Gyan ( +Airtel Ghana), +Kinna Likimani ( +Ghana Decides), Gloria Buckman (Plan It Ghana), Joseph Hudson (Tigo), Kimathi Kuenyehia (Top Lawyer), +Nana Amoah ( +Google Africa), +Hannah Acquah ( +Acumen FundComms), Valerie Labi ( +Clean Team Ghana), +Eugene Akoto-Bamfo (Osramba), +Eric Osiakwan (AngelAfrica), etc.
