Elire Benjamin

Senior Social Media Manager at Natixis Investment Managers


Elire (they/she) is the head of social media marketing at Natixis Investment Managers in Boston, Massachusetts, where they've worked since Summer 2021. For the previous decade, Elire worked in social media communications and marketing for various private sector clients and organizations, including being the first head of social media for U.S. private bank Brown Brothers Harriman in its 200-year history. Throughout, Elire has been a visible and outspoken advocate for LGBTQ+ equity in the workplace.

Elire received her degree in journalism from Boston University in 2011; today she lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts with her three bicycles named after international pop stars Marina Diamandis, Normani Kordei, and Jazmine Sullivan.
As a member of Natixis All Equals, I've been a visible member of the LGBTQ+ community within a traditionally conservative organization, and I've used that visibility and All Equals' institutional, political capital to shine light on issues affecting my queer brothers, sisters, and siblings both in and outside the financial services industry.
In my career, I've been the sole member of the queer community represented in countless rooms. It's my hope that through LGBT Great's work, I won't be "the first" or "the only"; together we're creating a cadre of visible, positive role models whose numbers are many and whose opinions are heard.
