Discrepancies between official OUTstanding Top 100 LGBT+ Executive List 2018 and those published by media partner the Financial Times
You may notice discrepancies between the Top 100 list published by the Financial Times and the official list published here.
While we respect the FT’s right to editorial control within their own publication, they have made changes to the list without the agreement of INvolve (the owner of the lists) or consultation with the board of judges who decided on this year’s placements.
The independence of the OUTstanding lists is essential to their power and credibility. Supporting minority voices in business is fundamental to why they exist. We created these lists to celebrate the incredible work being done by LGBT+ and ally leaders across the globe. They shine a light on role models who are inspiring and empowering future generations, and contribute to inclusive businesses where everyone can succeed.
As the actions of the Financial Times undermine this, we are left with no other option but to review our partnership with them.
