Group Chief Executive Officer

Gender diversity is essential. It is beyond a moral obligation—it’s a business imperative and differentiator. At Sodexo, greater diversity and inclusiveness are part of a cultural transformation that requires time and humility. Achieving gender equality drives our performance and is critical to reaching a Better Tomorrow for our employees, our clients and consumers, and the communities we serve. We are convinced that by mobilizing our employees towards a more inclusive growth, we can eliminate misconceptions and biases to make sure everyone can reach their full potential. We hope many other companies will endorse the Women's Empowerment Principles to make our collective efforts part of the usual way of doing business going forward.
