Sodexo will join 30 other Parity Certified organizations to be honoured at the annual Women in Governance Gala on September 11th at the Palais des Congrès in Montreal.

The Women in Governance Parity Certification helps Canadian organizations increase the representation of women, especially in decision-making and senior management positions. This innovative standard not only assesses parity at the decision-making level but also assesses an organization's commitment to implementing mechanisms that enable women at all levels to achieve career advancement and create a pipeline of female talent.

The Parity Certification Committee thoroughly researched trends across sectors and formulated a questionnaire with the support of McKinsey & Company and the Quebec Order of Certified Human Resources Professionals (CRHA).
