INSEAD alumni and guests were invited to workout with Sportegration, the Zurich-based social impact organization, in October 2017.

Sporty and spirited INSEADers  were invited to workout with Sportegration at the stylishly repurposed Löwenbräu-Silo in October. Sportegration is an innovative non-profit organization that offers fitness workouts (fit-boxing, running, yoga) several times a week for both refugees and locals to connect, learn, and have fun while getting fit.

Founded in Zurich in August 2016, Sportegration’s key ideas are “Together We Are Better” and “In Sports We Are All Equal”. It is planning to expand the winning social impact project to other cities across the country.

Connecting and Learning

More than two dozen INSEAD alumni and friends completed the fitness class. The fitness class was followed by brunch with Sportegration’s members and the founding team.

The group was diverse, ranging in age from teenagers to fiftysomethings. The men and women who participated also came from diverse professions, including consultants, legal experts, entrepreneurs and HR professionals. The proceeds from event registration were donated to the project.

“The values of an organization like Sportegration are aligned with INSEAD: honouring diversity, reducing barriers, respect, and openness,” said Cyrille Ghorayeb, MBA’13D, event organizer.

The Zurich Chapter will offer the event again in 2018. It is open to all levels of fitness. We hope you’ll join us for the next one!
