Sodexo’s dedicated business for sports, events and hospitality, Sodexo Live!, has joined Women in Football (WiF) as a corporate member, reaffirming its commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion.
The decision by Sodexo Live! to take up WiF Corporate Membership means a range of benefits for the company and its employees, including gender equality workshops, access to WiF events, and highly sought-after places on the Women in Football Leadership Course in partnership with Barclays.
The move follows a successful collaboration between the two organisations on a Women in Football watch party at Newcastle United FC during this year’s FIFA Women’s World Cup.
Adding Sodexo Live! as a member in turn enables Women in Football to extend the organisation’s reach and further its initiatives to empower women at all levels of the football ecosystem.
Women in Football CEO Yvonne Harrison said: “This partnership is a testament to the commitment of Sodexo Live! to inclusion and gender equality in football and beyond. It’s great news for the Sodexo Live! workforce and great news for women across the football industry.”
Kathryn Morgan, Business Development Director, Sports & Stadia at Sodexo Live! UK & Ireland said: “We are as passionate about football at Sodexo Live! as we are firm believers in gender equality. This is just one of the many reasons why we have joined forces with Women In Football.
“Our dedication to diversity and inclusion extends beyond our business operations, and this partnership allows us to actively contribute to the advancement of women in the football industry.
“By working together, both organisations aim to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and create a more inclusive and equitable environment for women in football.”
WiF’s other corporate members include Brentford FC, Brighton & Hove Albion FC (which Sodexo Live! has been operating since 2013), Manchester City FC, as well as the Premier League itself and other organisations such as PepsiCo and Sky Sports.
Planned, proactive maintenance is a keystone of every FM strategy. However, with current cost constraints, there are many demands on Facilities Managers’ maintenance budgets. When it comes to drainage and plumbing, however, the expense of repairing blockages or dealing with flooding could vastly exceed the cost of preventative maintenance.
Given your role as an FM Professional, we would love to hear your views, challenges & experiences, and opinions on drainage & plumbing within the workplace.
