We are delighted to announce that one of our trustees, TJ Richards, has been named as one of OUTstanding’s 50 LGBT+ Future Leaders, presented by the FT.
TJ has been recognised for her work as co-chair of Santander’s LGBT network, Embrace, as well as her work in helping to found RoundabOUT, an intercompany LGBTQ+ network for businesses based in Milton Keynes. Her work as a trustee for Q:alliance has also been mentioned in the article.
Suki Sandhu, Founder & CEO of INvolve said of the OUTstanding list:
“Our sixth OUTstanding list is our most international and diverse ever. It features executives representing 21 countries around the world – from Ghana to Germany and from India to Israel. We’re so proud to see so many senior and future leaders recognised as role models for their work driving cultural change and creating environments where everyone can succeed. Everyone – regardless of gender, sexuality or ethnicity – benefits from a level playing field where people feel able to bring their whole selves to work.”
