Celebrating lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) businesspeople who are successful in their own career while creating ‘supportive workplaces for other LGBT people,’ the 2018 OUTstanding LGBT + Role Models lists were published yesterday (25 October).

Presented by the Financial Times (FT), the latest edition saw Margot Slattery, Sodexo country president for Ireland, come in at number nine on the list of top 100 LGBT executives.  

This is the fifth year that Slattery has been included, praised for her work on Sodexo’s global LGBT leadership team.

“Influential in ensuring LGBT considerations are included in Sodexo’s global diversity and inclusion strategy, and that practical guides to LGBT inclusion have been developed for use across the globe,” she has spoken at 19 external events in the last year alone promoting LGBT equality in the workplace.

She said: “I’m humbled to be placed so high among these fantastic LGBT role models.

“Creating a culture where everyone feels comfortable to bring their whole self to work is all of our responsibility, so while I’m honoured to be included here as a role model, it’s important to remember that every single one of us has a part to play in making the workplace both inclusive and successful.”
