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. Exclusivity 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.
