What is LGBT Great's Top 30 Under 30?
LGBT Great’s Top 30 Under 30 is a Project 1000 Initiative. The programme seeks to shine a spotlight on the incredible work of the next generation of future leaders, who are blazing new trails for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) across their own organisations and the wider financial services industry.
Why is LGBT Great driving this important initiative?
LGBTQ+ people still remain underrepresented across financial services and, in many instances, overlooked. This award shines a spotlight on those individuals, amplifying their voices and showcasing the diverse landscape of DEI efforts within the industry.
By celebrating these young trailblazers, we hope to send a powerful message to the entire industry; it is a call to action, a nudge to break down barriers, and an invitation to all organisations to invest in the future of DEI by nurturing the next generation of leaders.
How to become part of LGBT Great's Top 30 Under 30?
Applications are welcome from nominees directly or may be made on their behalf. All nominations are individually reviewed and scored by the LGBT Great judging panel based on clear evidence of excellence across these 4 criteria:
- Personal and professional achievements using their platform in the last 12 months.
- History of deliberate and sustained actions to empower others internally and/or externally.
- History of clear contributions to progressing diversity, equity and inclusion internally and externally.
- Clear commitments or ambitions around DEI over the next 12 months.
The Top 30 Under 30 will be announced in April 2024!
