Established in 1972 - UNIMECH is a family-owned company, and one of the major groups in Bangladesh that have been the prime developers of the country’s civil aviation since their Independence in 1971. UNIMECH has been instrumental in developing ground-handling equipment used at the Dhaka International Airport. As of today, Josephine remains a board member and serves as the General Director of the organization. She is focused and committed towards growing UNIMECH's legacy.
Throughout her life, Josephine has supported different social causes and is passionate about helping others in need. As there are very few opportunities for women to study in Bangladesh, Josephine is planning to open this vocational institute for women to be trained in math engineering and medicine in the near future. The institute will be dedicated to her parents, the late Mr. Abu Saleh, and Mrs. Mahrukh Saleh - the current Chairwoman of UNIMECH.
Furthermore, she would like to sponsor scholarships for Bangladeshi women applying to INSEAD provided that they will return to Bangladesh to empower more women in the workplace.
