Our CEO Diane Lightfoot is on the Inspirational d&i Leaders 2023 list. Congratulations Diane!
Earlier this year d&I Leaders asked 321+ international diversity, equity and inclusion professionals the question – ‘Which diversity and inclusion leader inspires you the most?’, as part of the d&i Leaders Global Benchmarking Survey 2023. Diane was among the inspirational leaders nominated by their peers.
Also on the list are Buks Akinseye, Global Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Leader
at IKEA, Carolanne Minashi, Global Head of Inclusion at HSBC and Fleur Bothwick OBE, EMEIA Director of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at EY.
“I am surprised, delighted and humbled to have been nominated for this list – and especially so alongside such amazing company!” said Diane. “It is an honour to be on a list with so many people I know and admire. My heartfelt thanks to all who nominated me. More importantly, it’s wonderful to see the focus on diversity, equity and inclusion continuing to grow, along with the recognition that businesses and organisations in every sector and of any size need diverse talent to thrive. Attracting and supporting that talent means creating and nurturing an environment where everyone is welcome, everyone feels they can belong, and where everyone can see “someone like me”. Huge thanks to D&I Leaders and all who are working to drive change in this place. It is a privilege to be part of it.”
