Sodexo’s vending and hot beverage co-ordinator, Diane Gleeson, has been named on the 2019 Future List by Northern Power Women.

The Future List recognises the influencers and change makers of the future who are already making a difference in their environments and communities.

Gleeson said: “I’m honoured to have been named in this list. The nomination took me by complete surprise.

“I am extremely lucky to work alongside some incredibly inspirational and passionate women at Sodexo.

“I am looking forward to learning more about the Northern Power Women campaign and continuing to support my Sodexo colleagues around the topic of gender parity.”

Northern Power Women is a collaborative campaign accelerating and promoting gender diversity from the North of England.

It aims to transform the culture of organisations to increase opportunities for women by showcasing role models and best practice. It engages women and men from all industries, connecting and collaborating with them whilst celebrating their achievements as advocates to drive gender balance.

Gleeson joined Sodexo in 2015 as administrative support for its security team, which led to her involvement in the organisation’s Women in Security network group.

In 2017 she became co-chair of the group and continues to hold the role.

As part of the Women in Security network group, she developed engagement strategies including newsletters, creating the network’s Twitter account and organising networking events.

In November 2017, the network group celebrated its five-year anniversary with 2019 Future List fellow Michelle Partington.
