AGBU FOCUS is a four-day conference designed to encourage young Armenians to reconnect with their shared Armenian roots in all its forms. It's a unique opportunity for young talent, who have spread their foundations in various corners of the world, to meet new faces, expand their personal networks, engage in important dialogue, learn more about AGBU's global work, and celebrate their unique Armenian perspectives.
After four years of great anticipation, nearly 500 young professionals from 25 countries gathered in Spain’s capital of Madrid for AGBU FOCUS 2023.
AGBU FOCUS has converged in six countries and 10 different cities to date. This biennial event returns in Summer of 2025 so be sure to email firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to our mailing list and don’t forget to follow us on social media.
AGBU FOCUS 2023’s fundraising campaign was dedicated to support the women of Armenia and Artsakh through AGBU's EmpowerHer programming. Over $110,000 was already raised in support of EmpowerHer but it’s not too late to make a contribution.
EmpowerHer helps women from all regions of Armenia gain a leg up in their lives with professional development courses, mentorship connections and access to a growing number of like-minded women supporting women. With mindful programming through AGBU Women Entrepreneurs and AGBU Women Coders, over 400 women to date from throughout Armenia and Artsakh have completed courses, received guidance and some even received special grants to ensure success in building their business and finding jobs in the growing tech sector.
