Celebrate. Educate. Elevate. 

The mission of HEC Montréal's Black History Committee is to celebrate the achievements of people from Black communities in Canada and elsewhere. The new logo represents the desire to unite the strengths of every individual: different circles that come together to create a single entity. 

HEC Montréal wishes to recognize the work of the Black History Committee, now made up of nearly 40 members, including students and employees.
