Margot Slattery, country president of Sodexo Ireland, has been acknowledged as one of Ireland’s most influential and successful women by the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) at its 25 Most Powerful Women in Ireland Awards for 2018.
Margot was one of the winners in the Business Leaders category, and it’s her second time to be recognised at these awards; she was previously a winner in the Trailblazer category in 2016.
Every year the Women’s Executive Network (WXN) identifies and celebrates the work of 25 Irish women in fields that include business leaders, entrepreneurs, trailblazers, those in public sector as well as arts, sport and entertainment and spotlighting future leaders.
The Business Leaders category is sponsored by Indeed and recognises women who hold the most senior positions in Ireland’s largest companies. These women have made a significant contribution to business in their leadership roles in the past year, whether they oversee growth, lead fast-paced innovation, increase diversity in their business, role model for others, or break boundaries within their sector.
Commenting on her achievement, Margot Slattery said: “I am very honoured to have received this award. I work for an organisation that values and supports me unreservedly because they understand that an inclusive work environment is key to attracting the best talent to your business.“
“We are celebrating 25 of Ireland’s highest achieving women in diverse fields,” said Sherri Stevens, CEO of WXN. “All 25 are role models for the generations who will follow – which is why it’s very important to recognise and celebrate their great achievements.”
