Bitesize Learning: The power of LGBT+ and ally role models

Fri, February 22, 2019

22nd February 2019, 8.30am - 9.30am. Warnford Court, 29 Throgmorton Street, London, EC2N 2AT.


Role models can authentic how inclusive an organisation culture is and act as a beacon of inspiration to aspiring talent. Project 1000 has made a good start in under-covering some of the fantastic talent that exists in the asset management sector which was not visible before. The impact of this is that an increasing number of people wish to get involved which will demonstrate appetite for progress across firms. 

Given that the asset management industry is considerably less visibly diverse than other sectors, there is an opportunity for role models to have an even greater impact. How do you gain buy-in from leadership stakeholders? How do you inspire others to be role models? How do you create a culture of allyship?

We will also provide you with a number of takeaways for you to take back to your firms. The session will be documented in a bitesize white paper and distributed to participants to produce a framework for discussion.

Learning Outcomes: 

This facilitated discussion will seek to explore the psychological impact of role models in inspiring people. We will consider the context of Project 1000 and other case studies and explore opportunities to build on this further.

As a result of this session you will attending be able to:

  1. Explain the impact of role models.
  2. Understand how to be an inspiration to others.
  3. Appreciate the need to increase role model presence in our sector.
  4. List 5 ways of how to be an ally.
  5. Explain how leadership can effect results.
