What is Rising Sun?

Rising Sun is a Canadian-based Employee Resource Group that builds and leverages a vibrant workplace inclusive of Indigenous peoples to create impactful change in our organization and beyond. The ERG was named “Rising Sun” to represent the future opportunities for Indigenous peoples who choose to work, grow, and innovate with us at Aramark.

“The work we do as part of the Rising Sun Employee Resource Group impacts our employees, our customers, our partner suppliers and the communities in which we operate in important ways.

Our effort helps create career opportunities for indigenous staff and candidates, and through their contributions improve our operations and customer experiences.  I’m proud to be the Executive Sponsor of the Rising Sun ERG, and excited about the opportunity to help shape Aramark’s indigenous initiatives”

“Growing up on the West coast of Canada, I was exposed to aspects of Indigenous history and culture that I found inspiring. The support of the organization to form Rising Sun re-awakened that appreciation and now provides a platform for education, fairness and opportunity for such a large and diverse community.”
