The Asian Institute of Management ( AIM ) Master of Business Management ( MBM ) Batch 1995 has launched Notables at AIM, a nontraditional speaker series hosted by an array of luminaries with expertise and insight on relevant topics. Thought leaders and captains of industry are invited to engage not only with the AIM community but with the public in attendance as well. The speaker series kicks off Thursday, November 28 at Fuller Hall, AIM, Makati City.
With the event open to controversial figures in order to spur intelligent dialogue on challenging issues, the organizers saw it fitting to invite as their first featured speaker the first openly transgender woman elected to the Congress of the Philippines, Hon. Geraldine Roman, who has snagged headlines for her bold efforts in advocating for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender ( LGBT ) rights. The Bataan representative's talk focused on equality and inclusivity in the society.
Marc Ablaza, MBM '95 Batch Representative, explained that the speaker series is no ordinary speaking engagement. "It provides a much - needed arena for informed and purposeful exchange on relevant issues," said Ablaza. He also emphasized the relevance of creating conversations about the event's topic, "The third out of the seven fundamental human needs is the need to belong or connection. It comes after subsistence and security; and growth and understanding. Inclusivity addresses and fulfills that need. How do we achieve it? We temper if not altogether do away with discrimination. How do we go about it? We start with intelligent discourse. This is why and how Notables at AIM came to be. We are going to talk about inclusivity in the work place for increased productivity; in our institutions and industries for growth, and in our communities for general well being. Inclusivity is a critical yet complicated humanitarian issue. Let's start engaging with it."
AIM MBM Batch '95 organized Notables at AIM to further the renowned international management school's advocacy in providing quality education. The batch also hopes to raise funds for scholarships.
