Submit for the OUTstanding Lists 2021
The OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Model Lists aim to recognise those who are working beyond their job role to drive diversity and inclusion within business.
We therefore ask every potential Role Model to complete a short submission which outlines the key work they have been doing to create more inclusive cultures both inside and outside of their workplace.
Our expert judging panel will use this information to create a final List of inspiring Role Models which is representative of the full and diverse range of impactful and innovative work being done for inclusion across different countries, organizations and sectors.
Guidelines for completing successful submissions and answers to frequently asked questions can be found in our OUTstanding submissions guide. We recommend reading this before completing your submission to give you the best possible chance of appearing in the Lists.
