Our Approach

Sodexo Global Pride Taskforce, under the sponsorship of two executive members, drives our approach for supporting the inclusion and belonging of LGBTQ+ persons. The Taskforce is supported by work streams 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.
