Cheema included in Ethnic Minority Future Leaders list
Sodexo’s head of digital and promotions Harpreet Cheema was recently included in EMpower 2021 Ethnic Minority Future Leader Role Model list, supported by Yahoo Finance. He is co-chair of the caterer’s Origins employee network group and has been an active member since 2016. Origins aims to encourage inclusivity and cohesion, and promote equal opportunities for all.
Sean Haley, regional chair of Sodexo UK and Ireland, said: “We are incredibly proud of Harpreet. EMpower’s role model lists celebrate those in business who are driving the charge for inclusion, and it is great to see him being recognised for his fantastic achievements in paving the way for much needed change.”
Cheema added: “I didn't ever actively choose to be involved in inclusion activity; however, as a British Indian person I cannot avoid it, I was born into it. I feel that as an ethnic minority I have a sense of duty to make sure the playing field is as level as it can be for everyone, as it isn't today.”
