Leading 100 LGBT+ Executives of 2017

Es ist soweit: Out-Standing.org hat die Liste der 100 führenden LGBT+ Executives herausgebracht. Wenn ihr durch diese Liste stöbert und guckt, von wem ihr schon einmal gehört habt, denkt an die Durchsetzungskraft dieser Persönlichkeiten, die nicht nur Power haben, sondern auch LGBT+ sind.

Leider ist wieder niemand aus Deutschland dabei. Wir freuen uns daher sehr, dass wir (zusammen mit weiteren Partnern) nächstes Jahr die “Deutschlands Top 100 Executives” Liste veröffentlich werden! Mehr dazu bald.

Und Deutschland? Wir suchen jetzt Deutschlands TOP 100 Executives: Wir wollen in Anlehnung an diverse Listen aus den USA und UK, auch in Deutschland LGBTI-Vorbilder sichtbar machen. Vielen jungen LGBTI fehlt es an Vorbildern auf wirtschaftlicher, gesellschaftlicher und politischer Ebene. Das wollen wir ändern und aufzeigen, dass LGBTI out und erfolgreich zugleich sein können.
