Two renowned software and app development companies, InvoZone and Devsinc, have signed an MoU that will focus on the inclusion of the intersex community in the IT sector in Pakistan.
The main purpose of this MoU is to open doors of the IT sector to the intersex people in Pakistan who otherwise face socio-cultural discrimination on a regular basis.
Together, through this collaboration, both companies will strive to create employment opportunities for this marginalized community. They will make sure that at least 1% of their employees comprise intersex people.
Both InvoZone and Devsinc, being major players in the software development landscape, exercise an aim to promote inclusivity in IT, which is a booming sector in Pakistan, especially in terms of job creation.
Talking about this initiative, Furqan Aziz, CEO and Founder of InvoZone, said, “I’m proud of my company and Devsinc for taking this groundbreaking step. Intersex people are often rendered invisible and denied basic opportunities.”
He added, “Together we want to change this stereotype. For this, we would like people from the intersex community to reach out to us.”
