C.A.M.P.U.S. Awards: ten student, community-minded and socially aware initiatives rewarded

Natixis’ C.A.M.P.U.S. Awards support the development of the talents of the future, offering financial support of a total of €30,000 each year to back community-minded and socially aware initiatives from university students.

A jury of Natixis experts selected nine initiatives across three categories for the 2019 awards – sustainable development, socio-educational and international solidarity – and this year, the company also got its employees involved by creating a special staff-awarded prize after
a company-wide vote.

Anne Lebel, Chief Human Resources Officer and member of the Senior Management Committee at Natixis notes "The C.A.M.P.U.S. Awards embody three of our key commitments – entrepreneurial spirit, going the extra mile, and economic and social usefulness. We are pleased to support the younger generations as they seek to give their efforts meaning, take action and push back the boundaries to build a better world. Natixis is proud to contribute to the implementation of a range of useful initiatives in key areas, such as environmental protection, access to education and reducing inequality."
