Recently, Catalyst, the leading organization working to expand opportunities for women and business, announced that Sodexo is a recipient of its prestigious 2012 Catalyst Award.  The Catalyst Award honors innovative organizational initiatives that address the recruitment, development and advancement of women and minorities in the workplace.
 
Sodexo, one of only two companies honored this year, was recognized for our multi-pronged diversity and inclusion strategy that resulted in systemic culture change for the organization.  This win acknowledges the significant progress Sodexo has made and underscores our position as a benchmark organization for diversity and inclusion. 
 
It is only fitting that we dedicate this award to you, the 120,000 employees of Sodexo!  Your individual and collective commitment to diversity and inclusion has changed how and why we do business, making Sodexo a stronger, more agile company.  Whether it is your involvement in Employee Networks, Mentoring, Emerging Leaders, Champions of Diversity, Cross Market Diversity Council, diversity learning opportunities or diversity-related events, your participation has been the single most important factor in our success. Without your commitment and continuous support, this award and the progress it demonstrates, would not have been possible. 
 
As we celebrate this tremendous accomplishment over the next weeks and months, please know that we  appreciate all you do every day to support our commitment and advance our mission of creating a more diverse and inclusive organization.
