  • CSE-Celebration of "Ring the Bell for Gender Equality" on the occasion of International Women's Day

    March 12, 2024, Chittagong:

    Chittagong Stock Exchange PLC (CSE) organized a program on “Ring the Bell for Gender Equality” on the occasion of International Women's Day 2024 on March 11, 2024, at its head office in Chittagong. Globally, this year's theme for the event is “Invest in Women: Accelerate Progress”.


    To celebrate International Women's Day, stock exchanges around the world have been celebrating the “Ring the Bell” program with the United Nations Sustainable Stock Exchanges Initiative, World Federation of Exchanges, UN Women, UN Global Compact, and International Finance Corporation. The main objective of this program is to raise awareness about the importance of Gender Equality for business and sustainable development.


    Mr. M. Shaifur Rahman Mazumdar, FCA, FCMA, Managing Director of CSE presided over the event. Miss Sonia Hossain, Head of HR & Legal Affairs, and other officials of CSE were also present.


    In his welcome speech, the Managing Director of CSE said that although the participation of women in the capital market is not significant, we expect it to increase shortly. A lot of changes have been noticed recently. We want to ensure a women-friendly environment within the Stock Exchange. All women colleagues should be given more support in working and the work environment should be ensured to be transparent and spontaneous. Though the contribution of women to GDP is not significant but not unacceptable, this rate is increasing and we expect it to increase further. Overall progress can be ensured if women are given equal opportunities to implement gender equality in every field.


    Miss Sonia Hossain said we must take responsibility for creating the environment for our family. She also said that women should be given their place of honor, be it at home or outside. There is still a lot of mistrust of women. She said, adding that women always suffer from indecisiveness, so if given the right environment and support, she too will be a successful personality, businesswoman, entrepreneur, and colleague. And this practice should start with every family.


    Besides, other officials of CSE also shared their views and experiences.


    The Managing Director of CSE in his closing speech thanked everyone for making the event a success.
