Mia Mends
CEO, Benefits & Rewards, Sodexo, Inc.

I am a product of impactful mentoring. Throughout my career formal and informal mentors have guided me, challenged me and helped me evolve into the person I am today. Mentoring takes so many forms and whether they coached me, role modeled for me, listened to me, advised me, supported me, counseled me or just acted as a trusted resource, they all contributed to my success. In turn, I have a passion for sharing my experience and mentoring others, particularly young women.

I am inspired by incredible women who have broken barriers and paved the way for other potential leaders.  I am deeply conscious of how lucky I am to have a meaningful, gratifying senior leadership position, but I am also aware of how hard I had to work to reach this level.  I am an immigrant, born in Ghana.  My career path has not been linear, but I do not believe in chance occurrences. I am guided by the conviction that our lives are shaped by our own intention, sense of determination and preparation.
