Each year, Aramark’s PRIDE employee resource group (ERG) recognizes one member who most demonstrates the group’s mission to foster an open, inclusive environment in which lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning (LGBTQ+) employees, and their allies are fully engaged to achieve organizational goals and enhance professional growth.

His efforts help ensure the ERG is reinforcing a safe and affirming workplace at Aramark, where employees can be empowered to bring their whole selves to work.

Wallace was recognized during the Pride of Aramark 2021 virtual celebration, where the Oakland LGBTQ Community Center was recognized with the 2021 OUTstanding Community Partner Award. The Oakland LGBTQ Center is dedicated to enhancing and sustaining the well-being of LGBTQ+ individuals, families and allies, by providing educational, social, and health related activities, programs and services.
