I am passionate about

Actions

In the 6 years that I’ve worked at BMS, I am constantly inspired to see its effort for supporting Diversity & Inclusion (through PBRG programs as B-NOW, PAN, DAWN, and CLIMB), considering it as an important element to drive business performance. When an organization embraces diversity, its employees are not afraid to raise their voice and be heard, and when there are conflicts, there is also room for tolerance, communication and understanding. I believe this is how idea and creativity can emerge, which are crucial in the fast changing world today. DAWN (Differently-Abled Workplace Network) just launched this year in BMS-Japan, and I’ve volunteered to be its member. I would like to turn the learning from my sister to support other people with disabilities. One of the most notable event this year was that BMS-Japan and Deaf football Association entered a special sponsorship agreement for funding, and also a session will be planed to be held from a handicapped employee sharing her experience at the work place and how to improve it. There can also be possibilities to work with Paralympic Games which will be held in Japan in 2020. In BMS’s mission statement, it declares: “discover, develop and deliver innovative medicines that help patients prevail over serious diseases”, and I believe diversity & inclusion are the foundation for it. By attending the OYW summit, it will connect me with many likeminded fellows, both within and outside of BMS; a sense of unity will arise from different countries, culture, personality, and will enable us to make an impact to make the world a better place.
