Sodexo undertakes many ambitious initiatives to further this goal, including training, mentoring, creating women's networks, and raising awareness. For example, over the last seven years, the percentage of women in Group Senior Leaders has risen from 17 percent to 31 percent, and women now make up 43 percent of the board of directors and the Global Executive Committee. And we are aiming even higher. Global CEO Michel Landel has publicly stated a goal of 35 percent women in our Group Senior executive ranks by 2020 and 40 percent by 2025. At the heart of its commitment to gender balance lies the Sodexo Women's International Forum for Talent (SWIFT), an advisory board dedicated to ensuring better gender balance at all levels of the organization and focused on fostering women in leadership positions.
