How Olivier is building a better working world

“I help kids from disadvantaged backgrounds access college. A graduate of Sciences-Po Paris myself, I am on their selection board interviewing candidates and making sure social origin bias plays no part in the process. I have supported this initiative since its inception in 2001 and have seen over 1300 students get the opportunity to study.”
