Dell Technologies has recently appointed Sonia Bashir Kabir to its the Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) CXO advisory board, making her the sole Bangladeshi among 22 Asian representatives.

"I am very humbled and honoured to be considered as the only Bangladeshi among 21 other representatives across all of Asia," she told Dhaka Tribune.

She is also the first woman tech venture capitalist in South Asia and is currently the founder of SBK Tech Ventures, a venture capital company, and also the founder of SBK Foundation, a non-profit organisation.

The CXO advisory board is an engagement platform for select senior leaders representing a range of industries and verticals that collaborate with executives from Dell Technologies to explore business, cultural and technology issues with the goals of advancing technology, solving business problems, and furthering business value for each of the board’s members, said a press release.

The board is also a working group that brings together diverse perspectives in a collaborative forum.

Besides Dell’s CXO advisory board, Kabir has board roles in both international and local organisations. 

Internationally, she currently serves as vice-chairman in the board of United Nations Technology Bank, appointed by the UN secretary-general. 

She is also currently serving as a member of the governing board of UNESCO’s Mahatma Gandhi Institute of Education for Peace and Sustainable Development (MGIEP).

Locally, Kabir serves in the boards of Banglalink owned by VEON Group, Brac University, IPDC, Shakti Foundation and is also the technology adviser for the Federation of Bangladesh Chamber of Commerce & Industries.
