In support of the International Decade for People of African Descent, proclaimed by United Nations’ General Assembly resolution 68/237 and to be observed from 2015 to 2024, the Most Influential People of African Descent (MIPAD) identifies high achievers of African descent in public and private sectors from all around the world as a progressive network of relevant actors to join together in the spirit of recognition, justice and development of Africa, it's people on the continent and across it's Diaspora.

“‘I am typically uncomfortable when it comes to receiving recognition” Says Sherrod Seward. “However, this is wonderful news. I’m honored that someone out there understands what we are putting together over at Queen City Immigration Law”

As the emerging market business development leader at Queen City Immigration Law, Sherrod Seward spent much of 2017 educating business owners from the African Diaspora about how to eliminate trade barriers through immigration incentives. Sherrod’s efforts included modering panels, writing articles, and advocating to private and government partners.

Immigration is an underappreciated incentive to global business development, with small to medium sized enterprises. In truth, foreign business partners in emerging markets often do not know of the immigration opportunities available for business people. Queen City Immigration Law will continue advocating for business leaders in emerging markets in 2018 and beyond.

A celebration will take place on June 14th on the rooftop the Peculiar Rabbit located in Charlotte's popular Plaza Midwood District. The reception is from 7:00 - 9:00 P.M. and will feature great food, drinks, and music. To RSVP for this reception please visit www.qcilaw.com/hellosummer.
