Sodexo Named 2010 Straight for Equality in Business Awardee

Another honoree for the 2010 Straight for Equality awards was named today!

Sodexo, the nation’s largest provider of food and facilities services, has been named the 2010 Straight for Equality in Business awardee. In a statement from PFLAG today, the organization’s commitment to creating both policy and culture change when it comes to their diversity and inclusion efforts made them a clear choice for this year’s honors.

The company’s Employee Resource Group, PRIDE, has been waving the ally flag since its inception, and also stands as one of the first ERGs to add “ally” to its mission. PRIDE has also worked with Sodexo leadership to bring Straight for Equality in the Workplace training to both employees around the country as well as its executive-level management.

You can learn more about Sodexo by visiting the PFLAG Online Newsroom now. And there’s still time for you to buy tickets to the 2010 Straight for Equality Awards Gala in New York City on May 1. Find out more about the Gala and the 2010 class of awardees online now. (Did someone say Liza?)
