Homecoming 2017

Isabelle Bajeux-BesnainouOn October 12-15 alumni and friends from McGill’s Desautels Faculty of Management gathered in Montreal for a series of celebrations. It was a great time to reconnect and reminisce, make new connections, share accomplishments of our Faculty and our students.

Our signature Management Memories: An Evening at the Ritz gala was a great success, welcoming over 100 attendees. The Reconnect Reception was more popular than ever, as well as the Social Economy Initiative Keynote with Professor Patricia Hewlin and her co-discussants Mary Anderson, President of WBE Canada, and Tracy Joshua, Vice President of KNA Procurement at Kellogg’s. Best of all, we had a chance to see you. 

Thank you to all of our alumni for taking the time and the effort to join us. Your presence made the 2017 Homecoming weekend more memorable than ever, and we hope that you will join us again at your next homecoming.

Join Desautels Professor Patricia Hewlin and her co-discussants Mary Anderson, President of WBE Canada, and Tracy Joshua, Vice President of KNA Procurement at Kellogg’s, as they discuss social and business benefits of cross-sector collaboration among business and government agencies, not for profit organizations, and management scholars for integrating more businesses led by women, Aboriginal, and minorities into global supply chains. This expert panel will offer insight from corporate, advocacy and academic perspectives, and share innovative strategies for effectively implementing sustainable and equitable procurement practices without losing sight of the bottom line.
