“As a Jamat, we are fortunate to have access to the best education and opportunity to build for ourselves, and it’s now an opportunity to build for our children and our grandchildren...the themes of this conference are sharing knowledge, best practices, coming together, lifelong learning, and building for future generations. What is more befitting for the United States Jamat than to have this Conference as our last Diamond Jubilee initiative?” -Zahir Ladhani, Vice President, Council for USA

The Diamond Jubilee Alliances Conference is an energetic two-and-a-half day conference to enable an interactive knowledge exchange with talented Ismaili professionals from our various Alliance groups including Finance, Education, Media and Communications, Healthcare, Technology, Legal, Public Service, Business, and Finance.
