The program is a component of their Futuremakers Inclusive Employability Plan and is backed by enhanced infrastructure, service delivery, and the utilization of new technology. The initiative aligns with the bank’s objective of Financial Inclusion of People with Disabilities and is projected to provide additional doors and chances for future growth.

Rehan Shaikh, Chief Executive Officer, of Standard Chartered Bank (Pakistan) Limited said, “Our newly launched Internship Programme for differently-abled persons is a key milestone in our efforts to provide them with equal access and opportunity to participate in economic activities and realize their full potential.”

This initiative was launched in presence of Rehan Sheikh, Chief Executive Officer of SCBPL, Millicent Clarke, Regional Head of Human Resources, Africa and Middle East, and Muhammad Umer, Country Head of HR SCBPL, and was attended by our existing differently-abled colleagues who also shared their journey and experiences at the Bank.

“This initiative is supported by improved infrastructure, service delivery, and use of innovative technologies and is part of our Futuremakers Inclusive Employability Programme which is critical for embedding Diversity and Inclusion priorities within our footprint. This is also in line with the Central Bank’s agenda of Financial Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities, and we are confident that it will open more doors and opportunities to develop further as we move forward.”
