On 15 January 2017, Sami and Sally, our INSEAD mascots, were launched simultaneously from the Singapore and Fontainebleau campuses to promote the Salamander Challenge (the Salamander Challenge homepage) and INSEAD Giving Day.
These initiatives are globally driven by alumni, and in particular by fundraising volunteers.
Since the launch, Sami and Sally have been bringing the alumni community closer together through their adventures (you’ve seen some of these on our social media channels), as well as raising awareness about giving back to the school. The Salamander family has also grown to meet the demands of our global community. They now include Sadie who was cloned in the Biotech hub of San Francisco by our innovative alumni who were super eager to get involved in the Americas as well as Lenny, Sami’s little brother, Lenny (pictured here) covering the Middle East.
