Face mask donation: a wave of solidarity from our Alumni network in Asia

Jun 24, 2020


As a gesture of international solidarity, emlyon’s Alumni network in Asia and our people on our campus in Shanghai came together to support us in our fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. The result was astonishing: they raised enough funds to buy 26,000 face masks!

In agreement with our Alumni and fellow staff members on our Asian campus, we decided to donate 10,000 of the collected face masks to the Red Cross, who is on the front daily, fighting in hospitals, and alongside exposed populations to end this sanitary crisis. On Friday June 12th last, on our campus in Ecully, Tugrul Atamer, President of the Executive Board of emlyon, and Bénédicte Bost, CSR Director, had the honor to hand over these masks to the Red Cross’s Rhône representatives, Quentin Rivoiron and Loic Morcel, thanks to the coordination of  the emlyon alumni network director, Fabienne Clérot.

The remaining face masks are already being distributed to the School’s staff members and will be so too, to the students of emlyon business school in France and in Casablanca, as a means to help us return gradually to work under the best possible conditions.

🙏 We would like to express our warmest gratitude to our dear colleagues and Alumni network in Asia. 👉 For more information on this initiative
