Monique Leroux, president and CEO of Desjardins Group, writes a new book

Monique F. Leroux, president and CEO of Desjardins Group and board chair, is no stranger to the spotlight, thanks to her leadership in the cooperative sector.

So many people look to Leroux for her insights and inspiration and she’s now shifted the focus by interviewing 18 different leaders on the cooperative scene, which has culminated in her new book, Conversations on Cooperation.

“In 2012, the International Summit of Cooperatives provided a wonderful opportunity to meet many members of the international cooperative movements. This is what motivated me to introduce some of them to you,” says Leroux.

Interviewees include Kathy Bardswick, Dame Pauline Green, Ed Rust and Bill Cheney, among others. Conversations on Cooperation is available in print and as an e-book for $14.99 and can be ordered online. All proceeds will go to the Desjardins Foundation. ◊
