AG2R LA MONDIALE, a major partner of Montpellier Business School, is committed to the Social Entrepreneurship & Inclusion Chair.
A new support based on the common values of social innovation and accessibility to employment
From the start of the 2020 academic year, AG2R LA MONDIALE renewed its commitment with Montpellier Business School through a new partnership with the Chair of Social Entrepreneurship and Inclusion. This new support provides financial support for three years to the Chair headed by Walid Nakara. A progress review will be carried out at the end of each year to assess the progress and impact of this innovative programme.
“We have a common goal: promoting innovation and social entrepreneurship, developing inclusion in all businesses and supporting and training the people least likely to find a job to start their own business and work in the Social and Solidarity Economy (SSE),” explains Dr. Walid Nakara, Teacher-Researcher and Chair Holder.
AG2R LA MONDIALE, a major partner strongly involved in MBS’s inclusion policy
A major partner since 2018, AG2R LA MONDIALE is involved in the training of all talents, by supporting the MBS Foundation for Equal Opportunities and by welcoming work-study students from Montpellier Business School and covering all their tuition fees.
Within the framework of this new partnership with the Chair of Social Entrepreneurship & Inclusion, “a virtuous circle will be created between AG2R La Mondiale’s teams specialising in the sale and takeover of companies, the social and tax expertise of employees and self-employed workers, and the Chair headed by Walid Nakara” explain Roland NICCOLINI, Regional Director for Occitanie Languedoc-Roussillon AG2R La Mondiale and Frédéric SOULIE, in charge of the Group’s Social Activities Department for the region.
This partnership was made possible thanks to the agreement of the members of the AG2R LA MONDIALE Regional Social Action Commission.
Why get involved with the Chair of Social Entrepreneurship & Inclusion?
Created in March 2019, the Social & Inclusion Entrepreneurship Chair is part of the two components of the Yunus Centre of MBS and federates an ecosystem in favour of a social and solidarity economy, bringing together companies, higher education, research and people in need of support and training.
The Chair seeks to promote the SSE and the fight against precariousness by training people excluded from employment so that they can acquire key entrepreneurial skills for professional integration.
The Social & Inclusion Entrepreneurship Chair also designs training modules to help students and young people to undertake differently and to become actors in a world undergoing social and ecological transformation. The organisation of Rob Hopkins’ visit to the MBS campus was part of this dynamic.
This new partnership with AG2R LA MONDIALE will be put forward at the beginning of the next school year. In the meantime, if you want to know more about the Social Entrepreneurship and Inclusion Chair, click here.
