This book portrays a determined woman who put the values of Desjardins Group at the centre of her life. Founder of the International Summit of Cooperatives, Monique F. Leroux promoted the cooperative model which now occupies a place of choice on the world economic stage.
Her mandate as president of the Desjardins Group ends in April 2016, but Mme Leroux will pursue her career at the heart of the cooperative world as President of the International Co-operative Alliance. (Available in French only)

B20: fostering the international growth of smes
Today, on the 2nd of December, I have the pleasure of participating in the discussions of the B20, the international business community forum that makes recommendations to the G20 leaders. My involvement in this forum is a direct outcome of the International Summit of Cooperatives, which led to the recognition on the part of the B20 of the importance of cooperatives as levers of sustainable development around the world.
