What is LGBT Great's Top Trans and Non-Binary Role Models?
The Top Trans and Non-Binary Role Models is a Project 1000 initiative. The programme seeks to recognise and celebrate those trans and non-binary folks blazing new trails for LGBT+ DE&I across financial services and business.
Why is LGBT Great driving this important initiative?
We know that trans and non-binary folks are severely underrepresented across financial services and business. At LGBT Great, we want to shine a light on the personal stories, successes and lived experiences of the amazing trans and non-binary folks that are in our industry currently. We hope that spotlighting their excellence will act as a beacon for the current and next generation of talent and will serve as a catalyst for industry-wide change.
How to become an LGBT Great Top Trans and Non-Binary Role Model?
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:
- Evidence that the nominee has gone above and beyond to empower the LGBT+ community in the last 12 months.
- History of sustained commitment to progressing LGBT+ DE&I internally and/or externally.
- History of being present in the community and/or using their voice to raise awareness for trans and non-binary inclusion.
- Clear commitments or ambitions around LGBT+ DE&I over the next 12 months.
