Finance Inc is a multi-country VOICE supported project being implemented by APCOM and our country partner organizations in Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, and the Philippines. The project aims to engage financial institutions and the private sector towards LGBTQI inclusion.
APCOM and our country partner organizations implementing Finance Inc did not have much experience in engaging financial institutions and the private sector towards LGBTQI inclusion.
Being able to coordinate with the Asian Development Bank for the conduct of a panel discussion to discuss entry points for LGBTQI inclusion for IDAHOT 2019 was a milestone for us. This was the first for the Asian Development Bank, and as panelists, APCOM and our country partner were able to bring our voices to the table on how LGBTQI inclusion can be reflected on.
Finance Inc allowed us with the experiences, learnings and reflections in engaging new stakeholders with the collective aspiration of leaving no one behind.
