Standard Chartered Bank PLC has successfully held the 2024 edition of the Career Fair programme for Persons with Disability in Ghana.

The fair which was first held five years ago is to advocate for disability inclusion in the world of work.

It is organised by Standard Chartered Bank Ghana PLC in cooperation with the Ghana Federation for Disability Organizations (GFD) and other national and international partners.

The fair is organised in collaboration with the British High Commission, British Council, Altruistic Foundation, United Nations Ghana, Promoting Equal Rights for Women and Girls with Disabilities in Ghana (PERD), Orica West Africa, Sightsavers, UKGCC and the Multimedia Group.

Speaking at the fair, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Standard Chartered Bank, Mansa Nettey said the continuous organisation of the programme reaffirms its commitment towards building sustainable, inclusive communities.

“For more than 5 years we have played an important role in the organization of this Career Fair. Our continuous lead, emphasises our commitment towards the building of sustainable and inclusive communities,” he stressed.

Mansa Nettey continued, “At Standard Chartered we are focused on building a culture of inclusion, which is a critical lever to the bank’s success. Our unique diversity, alongside our inclusive values and culture are essential building blocks and drivers of our purpose. This enables our staff to unlock innovation, make better decisions, deliver our strategy, live our valued behaviours, and Here for good.”

In her speech, the Standard Chartered Bank CEO said the Career Fair, is not another box-ticking exercise for the bank towards driving inclusion at its workplace but an appreciation of the benefits to both prospective employers and potential employees.

She stressed that it is the bank’s way of building inclusive communities.

She said as partners and employers, there is a need to be passionate about driving inclusion in every sphere of the organisations and recruitment is one way to do this.

“We believe this fair would help you as much as possible kick start your dream, stay, and succeed in the job market. We also believe this will help you break the barriers you often encounter as well as destroying stereotypes,” Mansa Nettey told the participants at the fair.

She further urged the participants to fully participate in the fair and take advantage of all opportunities available to them.
