Sophie Javary

Member of the France Campaign Committee

Vice-Chairman CIB EMEA, BNP Paribas


Fondation - S.javary

The reason why I personally became involved with the HEC Foundation is because I want our School to be strong, maintain the values of a "Grande École", select students based on demanding academic criteria, with European roots but accessible with no financial criteria. It is equal opportunities that form the basis of the HEC Foundation’s values: social equality, diversity, inclusion, disabilities.... And it is precisely because of these values that I became involved.
