Paving the Way for Women in Business with Burcin Ressamoglu #81

In the episode, Nick Day is joined for this International Women’s Day special episode of The HR L&D Podcast by Burcin Ressamoglu, CEO at Sodexo Engage. Burcin is highly passionate about breaking down barriers and paving the way for women in business!

As the leader of Sodexo Engage, Burcin is a strong advocate of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. She is a steering member of the Sodexo Global Gender Equality Advisory Board – #SoTogether, where she actively leads the gender equality policies of Sodexo.

Some months ago, she stood up against board members and demanded action against the gender imbalance of the C-Suite. Now Burcin wants to share her story to help raise awareness of the benefits of a gender-balanced, visionary approach to leadership.

Burcin is not afraid to shatter glass ceilings and has become a vocal advocate for supporting women to achieve their full potential in the workplace.

International Women’s Day is a global holiday celebrated annually on March 8 as a focal point in the women’s rights movement, bringing attention to issues such as gender equality, reproductive rights, and violence & abuse against women.
