Join us for this Gender Parity Forum!

This virtual forum will deep dive into Sodexo’s Gender Balance Study, which explores the business performance outcomes that are linked to equal gender distribution in management. Ms. Suzanne Bergeron, President of Sodexo Canada, will cover the research which supports the case for gender balance in the workplace, as well as the avenues organizations should pursue when working toward attaining and sustaining parity. Through knowledge sharing and interaction, we will provide valuable insights that will aid in refining your organization’s strategies for closing the gender gap.

A true leader in gender parity, diversity, and inclusion practices, Sodexo has obtained the Women in Governance Parity Certification year after year since 2017 and is Planitum level since 2018.

Admission fee is CAN$25 (free for certified organizations and WiG members with promo code).

We look forward to your participation!
