An announcement was made by BRAC Bank recently about a mainstream job opportunity where the 3rd gender and persons with special needs are equally eligible to apply.
The Young Leaders Programme was launched by BRAC Bank, a dedicated programme for fresh graduates, as part of the bank’s investment in building a robust and talented workforce.
The lender encouraged females, males, people from the 3rd gender and persons with special needs to apply to this year-long programme.
BRAC Bank HR head Akhteruddin Mahmood said: ‘Our Young Leaders with fresh ideas must aspire to be change-makers in the bank. The program will offer structured learning opportunities and 360-degree exposure to the different functions of BRAC Bank’.
When applying for the Young Leaders’ programme, applicants now prioritise their preferred divisions among the 17 divisions of the bank.
An appealing remuneration will be assured to the young leaders, and on successful completion of the programme, they will get appointed as principal officers.
BRAC Bank is one of the first corporations in the nation to have announced a mainstream job opportunity for the 3rd gender.
In April 2021, BRAC Bank organised a learning session for its employees on gender prejudices where Tashnuva Anan Shishir, Bangladesh’s first trans-person news broadcaster, was invited as the speaker.
