Our Approach

Sodexo Global Pride Network, under the sponsorship of two executive members, drives our approach for supporting the inclusion and belonging of LGBTQ+ persons. The network is supported by workstreams who lead the way by fostering an inclusive environment in which Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer employees can "bring their whole selves" to work.
