It is good to see that companies are now expanding their focus from just getting business back on track to investing in initiatives that strengthen the shop floor and enhance social causes that matter like female leadership in the manufacturing sector.
In its continual efforts to make this happen, the renowned Hong Kong-based EPIC Group has entered into a strategic collaboration with Building Resources Across Communities (BRAC; previously known Bangladesh Rural Advancement Committee) to pave the future for women empowerment in Bangladesh through a co-created technical and professional initiative.
The collaboration was launched on Sunday (18 October 2020).
The Epic Group, which has always been known for its commitment to the social wellbeing of its employees, believes this partnership with BRAC will help rigorously train, mentor and evaluate over 500 employees and thereby enable them progress through several leadership roles at EPIC.
More on the collaboration, Ranjan Mahtani, Founder, CEO and Chairman, said “The welfare, equal treatment and women empowerment have always been at the core of EPIC’s values. Our partnering with BRAC will further develop our commitment to women, and help create women leaders around the world – making us a supplier of the future.”
And it’s not new for BRAC either!
Corroborating further, Jenefa Jabbar, Director, Human Rights & Legal Aid Services and Social Compliance, said “Ever since the inception of Bangladesh, BRAC continues to empower women and train them to adapt to new technologies so as to make them job-ready for future.
Women empowerment in today’s times has, unfortunately, got neglected in every industry across the globe; keeping this in view, the collaboration between EPIC and BRAC holds lot of relevance and is worth every applause.
EPIC Group, which runs manufacturing facilities in 11 locations across South & Southeast Asia, the Middle East and Africa, has been at the forefront of the garment manufacturing industry, leading with engineering and operational excellence, technology, design and innovation to deliver high-quality products to global brands and retailers.
