This case study focuses on the efforts of AccessBank Azerbaijan to practice non-discrimination among employees through deliberate efforts to hire people with disabilities (PWD). Additionally, the Smart Note provides a testimonial from one of AccessBank’s employees, Asad Aslanov, about his experience as a person with disabilities working as a cashier at the MFI. Through inclusive hiring policies, targeted recruitment of PWDs, and specialized training, AccessBank demonstrates a commitment to non-discrimination.

These efforts may make the institution a more welcoming environment for clients with disabilities, but further measures will be needed to achieve a similar level of non-discrimination for clients. Through this Smart Note, the Smart Campaign highlights AccessBank’s important first steps toward more comprehensive non-discrimination practices.
