|Women Energize the Energy Industry!
By Amber Almeida, Executive Recruiter
Are you a leading professional in an energy or facilities management role? If so, Sodexo offers numerous opportunities to grow your career!
The Sodexo Solution Center – which designs, develops and delivers a range of technical services for our clients, such as our facilities and energy management services – has seen steady growth in the energy management space. In fact, for a field that has been traditionally difficult for women to break into, the Sodexo Solutions Center has been pivotal in creating new energy management career opportunities where both men and women are excelling at Sodexo.
For example, the Solution Center built a group within the Energy Management team that handles a service called Utility Expense Management. The amazing part about this group is that it is made up of three women. So, here we have this very cutting-edge team of people doing some wonderful things for very noteworthy clients.
For women in this sector who are interested in advancing their careers, the Council on Women in Energy & Environmental Leadership (CWEEL) is a great place to network. As such, to support and attract women into energy management roles at Sodexo, the company sponsors an annual breakfast for CWEEL, which is a division of the Association of Energy Engineers that supports the role of women in the energy and environmental industries.
The most recent event was held at the end of September at the Washington, DC Convention Center. Attendees were able to network and listen to presentations related to current developments in the industry, as well as hear more about Sodexo's Solution Center.
The CWEEL committee is composed of women in key leadership roles who focus on spreading their wealth of information and sharing employment opportunities in the energy industry. The goals are to assist the members with career development activities and to enable young women to find mentors who will support their development.
As you grow your career, consider opportunities with Sodexo's Energy Management team. Sodexo believes in building a sustainable future with the support of both men and women in the energy industry.
