Over 50 individuals participated in an online forum held by non-profit organisation La Vida Brunei on Wednesday.

Panellists covered a range of topics from different perspectives, in support of equal rights and opportunities for all.

The event served to raise greater awareness on the importance of equal rights and opportunities for women, people with different abilities, and the underprivileged.

The talk also highlighted ways for communities to support the initiative.
