Supplier diversity strengthens us all
We share a vision of a workplace rooted in diversity, and recognize that diversity benefits us all. We actively seek to bring diverse businesses into our network of suppliers, including minority-owned, women-owned, disabled-owned or LGBT-owned companies. Sodexo announced its official Commitment to Action that supports the growth of small to medium sized enterprises (SME) with a pledge to purchase products and services totaling $1billion by 2017. The Commitment to Action aims to benefit as many as 5,000 small businesses in 40 countries, with 1,500 of those businesses being women owned and operated.
Leading by example
