The Pride network aims to lead on lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT+) inclusion for everyone we work with.
The network undertakes a range of initiatives and activities to raise awareness and help us all understand our role in ensuring Sodexo’s working environments are welcoming for all.
As with all our networks, all UK and Ireland employees are welcome to join. The business needs positive allies and visible role models to support LGBT+ inclusion. Please get involved and champion inclusive behaviours.
There are also external organisations that the Pride network partner with who provide specialist support in this area.
On Saturday 6 July, members of the Sodexo Pride UK & Ireland employee network descended on London to march in the city’s Pride parade. For a flavour of #SodexoPride, watch the employee video from parade day, made up of stories from our people in UK & Ireland.
Pride UK & Ireland will also be taking part in Mancheser Pride on 24 August 2019.
This is the second year that Sodexo has particpated at the huge Pride in London event, and the first time in England's second capital, Manchester.
