Natixis Dubai Women in Natixis Network (WiNN) joined forces with Natixis Dubai CSR to sponsor two athletes from the Special Olympics

"To mark International Women’s Day, Natixis Dubai Women in Natixis Network (WiNN) joined forces with Natixis Dubai CSR to sponsor two athletes from the Special Olympics who competed in the 2019 World Games in Abu Dhabi.

The mission of Special Olympics is to provide year round sports training and athletic competition in a variety of Olympic type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. 

Unlike the Paralympics, which is sponsored by governments, the Special Olympics is not for people who excel in a sport. Those affected by intellectual disabilities cannot commit in the same ways that people with physical disabilities can to their chosen disciplines.

 
Matteo and Greta, our Special Athletes, came to visit Natixis Dubai on the 10th of March, this was an incredible moment for all of us! We understood that the Special Olympics is not just about competing, it is a celebration of inclusion and diversity and is for everyone to learn what determination truly means.

We are incredibly proud and honoured to have sponsored these athletes, their values, their determination, the strive for inclusion and the acceptance of diversity, something that Natixis unequivocally believes in.


Greta and Matteo competed alongside 7000 athletes from over 170 different countries. But as far as we are concerned they have already won, as they were able to embark on this journey without their families for the first time, demonstrating an independence that they would have never imagined to obtain. For this, we presented Matteo and Greta with Natixis Gold medals.

Well done to Matteo and Greta! We wish you every success in the upcoming competitions and beyond.”
