MONAT® Global Canada, a multinational distributor of hair care products, was awarded the Direct Sellers Association (DSA) of Canada’s Making a Difference Award as well as the Code of Ethics Certificate for conducting ethical business. MONAT Canada Vice President and General Manager Jackie McClements received the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) Circle of Distinction Award.
MONAT® Global was honored with DSA’s Making a Difference Award for the corporation’s charitable impact on communities across Canada. Through MONAT Gratitude, the corporation’s global philanthropic initiative, MONAT Canada donated $5,000 to Wounded Warriors in 2017 and invested more than $14,000 in monetary donations and goods to the Salvation Army Community Centers and Disaster Relief in Fort McMurray, Alberta. MONAT Canada’s corporate staff also participated in more than 50 hours of volunteer service at nonprofits like Big Brothers Big Sisters and Yellow Brick House, providing help and hope for Canadian families and youth.
“When we started MONAT Global, our goals were to create excellent products, a corporate governance structure of the highest ethics, and make sure we give back not just locally, but globally,” said Ray Urdaneta, CEO of MONAT Global. “Our Canada office, our employees and our Market Partners are all incredible people. I am so proud of our team; these awards and distinctions are richly deserved!”
The DSEF Circle of Distinction Award recognizes individuals who have devoted significant years of service and have made considerable contributions to the DSEF and the direct selling industry. McClements has been an advocate for the network industry for more than 17 years, serving previously as the vice chair and currently as the chair of the board for the DSEF. She also headed the DSEF fundraising efforts for several years while using her platform to educate people about the direct selling industry.
“Jackie is an amazing leader,” Stuart MacMillan, president of MONAT Global. “She motivates not just MONAT Global employees, but our Canadian Market Partners. Her certificate of distinction reflects not only her abilities, but her drive to give back and invest in the community. I congratulate Jackie and our entire Canada team.”
