The bank will be the naming right sponsor of the “Community Leadership Award” category for the Men of Honour Awards.
BSP Head of Marketing & PR, Gorethy Semi, said: “Aligned with the bank’s core values of community and leadership, we are pleased to support the cause to contribute to developing and rewarding male leaders for their commitment and contribution in their respective communities.
As a community oriented bank, we respect, value and support the communities in which we operate in.
“As a leading bank in the Pacific, BSP is proud to support this category in continuing its partnership with corporate organisations and foster relationship with talented community leaders who demonstrate positive and inspiring behaviours,” she said. “At BSP, leadership as one of our core values is defined as; ‘We inspire, we change, and we live our values, and lead by example’. And what better way to partner with Digicel Foundation Men of Honour Awards to recognise these men.”
When receiving the cheque, Digicel Foundation Chief Executive Officer, Serena Sasingian, applauded BSP noting that the Men of Honour Awards provides these men with a platform to tell their stories and use it to advocate collectively against the violence that is so prevalent across society.
The main outcome of these efforts is to create a brotherhood of phenomenal men coming together to influence positive change in their communities.
“We have received 271 high quality nominations for all categories and we look forward to the awards night on Thursday 29 August, 2019, at the APEC Haus in Port Moresby.
“The BSP support will go towards sponsoring prize money and the organising of the event. We hope that this campaign will encourage a culture of mutual respect and create positive opportunities for people in our communities,” said Sasingian.
