At the Centraide Solidaires awards ceremony on April 9, HEC Montréal was presented with the Coup de cœur (“Public Sector Campaign” category), for the strong increase in its participation rate, the incredible leap in the number of Leader donors, the generous involvement of its management team, and for arranging for 25 presentations by agency speakers to be offered to over 500 employees—the combined effect of which boosted donations by 13%.
HEC Montréal has been supporting the Centraide cause for many years now. The 2013 campaign at the School, chaired by Professor Jacques Robert (Information Technologies), raised over $122,000, thanks to the generosity of the HEC Montréal community.
