PHILADELPHIA (October 11, 2019) – Aramark (NYSE:ARMK), a global leader in food, facilities management and uniforms, has named Kris Reinhardt (preferred name Alyx), a Senior Telecommunications Analyst, the 2019 Pride of Aramark awardee, in recognition of her commitment to advancing the Aramark PRIDE employee resource group (ERG) and supporting the LGBT community.
Each year, Aramark PRIDE recognizes one member of the ERG who most demonstrates the group’s mission to foster an open, inclusive environment in which lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) employees and their allies are fully engaged to achieve organizational goals and enhance professional growth.
Reinhardt has been an Aramark employee for more than 20 years and has been an active member and leader since the group’s inception in 2011. She has been integral in the expansion of Aramark’s local ERG hubs, which are critical to creating more inclusive workplaces outside of Aramark’s Philadelphia-based headquarters.
An avid supporter of the arts and local community organizations, Reinhardt frequently writes theater reviews for local pride magazine, Out in Jersey. She is the third recipient of the Pride of Aramark Award.
Aramark PRIDE has been a leader in Aramark’s diversity and inclusion efforts. Aramark has received 100% score on the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index the last 5 years, and Aramark joined Supreme Court amicus briefs supporting marriage equality in Ogerbegell v. Hodges and more recently, the three Title VII cases argued before the Court on October 8, 2019. In 2017, the ERG lead the implementation of gender transition guidelines for Aramark employees.
