BRAC Bank has created employment opportunity to people from other genders and people with physical challenges in its fleet as coworkers.

BRAC Bank has created employment opportunities for fourteen transgender and physically challenged individuals who will be deployed in different divisions of the bank, based on their skillset, said a press release.

Selim RF Hussain, Managing Director and CEO of BRAC Bank, said: “BRAC Bank believes that race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or physical challenges should not be any barrier for an individual to deliver their potentials. Our existing coworkers are already sensitized to welcome the new teammates with open arms in the BRAC Bank family.”

BRAC Bank has taken this initiative by responding to its conscience and inner calling as a responsible corporate citizen. 

As a part of the smooth onboarding process, the bank has already conducted special sensitizing sessions for its people about gender-related prejudices so that the new recruits receive a warm welcome and acceptance at their workplace.

Hussain also said: “As a values-based organization, BRAC Bank believes in ‘leaving no one behind’. It respects and recognizes the importance of distinctive life journeys that extend beyond the paradigms of gender. Our work focuses on creating equitable processes and policies that allow us to create space for everyone to thrive.”

BRAC Bank Limited traded as ‘BRACBANK’ on Dhaka Stock Exchange has been one of the country’s fastest-growing banks since its inception in 2001 with a particular focus on the SME segment.
