BBDN is elated to announce a pivotal moment in our commitment to fostering inclusivity and diversity. Our esteemed CEO, Murteza Rafi Khan, had the privilege of addressing the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) during the Commemoration of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities in Bangkok.
At this significant event, BBDN proudly participated in the launch of the publication titled “Disability at a Glance 2023 – Catalysts of Change: Disability Inclusion in Business in Asia and the Pacific.” This launch was honored by the presence of H.E. Ms. Armida Salsiah Alisjahbana, United Nations Under-Secretary-General and Executive Secretary of UNESCAP.
The occasion was marked by profound insights shared by distinguished panelists and speakers. BBDN commends the collaborative efforts between UN agencies and the International Labour Organization (ILO) in addressing the critical issue of disability-inclusive business practices. Witnessing such a convergence of diverse collaborators underscores the commitment to driving scalable and sustainable change for building a disability-inclusive labor market in the Asia Pacific region and beyond.
