Leadership Summit (Marriott Islamabad, March 18-20 2019)

Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) and Fogarty International Center (FIC) hosted the first Leadership Summit in Pakistan in Marriott Islamabad on March 18-20 2019. The theme of the summit was “Prepare” on Day 1, “Protect” on Day 2, and “Promote” on Day 3. Participants were provided a glimpse of how PBSA conducts its workshops and the various ways that leadership is useful towards the success of an organization.

Keynote speakers of the summit were Dr. Aamer Ikram, Dr. Erum Khan, Dr. Zabta Khan Shinwari, Dr. David R. Franz, Maj. Gen. Dr. Muhammad Tahir Khadim, Ben Rusek, Rita Guenther, Tim Trevan, Sean Kaufman, Dr. Zeba Rasmussen and Dr. Uzma Bashir.

Participants came from all of Pakistan, and appreciated the efforts of Pakistan. They hoped to utilize the lessons learnt from the summit to inculcate HRO (High Reliability Organization) principles in their organizations.

Being elected as the President of Pakistan Biological Safety Association (PBSA) is a true honour for me. I believe that promoting awareness, knowledge and understanding of biosafety at the regional and national level is responsibility of each member and trainer of the PBSA. This organization is commended in many of the national and international forums for its preventive training for Risk Assessment and management, that was much needed at the time of COVID-19 outbreak. Additionally, it has promoted strong collaborations and affiliations with various Biosafety developmental programs that align with international standards to acknowledge and recognize biosafety as a separate scientific discipline within Pakistan. I strongly agree that “no one is safe until everyone is safe”, and would like to work with the PBSA team to implement this approach as far and wide as possible.
