Asif Saleh, a senior director at BRAC and BRAC International, has been elected as the new Chairperson of IID during its recent annual general meeting. Asif Saleh is one of the founder members of IID and was an inspiration behind the inception of IID when he brought together a group of young minds from across the globe through Drishtipat Writers’ Collective.
The outgoing chairperson Rafiqul Islam Rowly, who guided the institute during its most uncertain time since inception, remains on the governing body. Sara Hossain, Samia Huq and Syeed Ahamed were present while Zafar Sobhan joined the Board Meeting online.
The board members discussed IID’s Strategic Plan for the coming years, along with its procurement policy, gender and social inclusion policy and green office policy. They also observed IID’s 5th anniversary with a cake at the end of the meeting.
