The Power of Role Models and Visibility

In 2022, LGBT Great launched the Top 100 Gamechangers 2022 sponsored by Citi. This visibility program shone a spotlight on 100 LGBTQ+ employees changing the game for LGBTQ+ diversity, equity, and inclusion (‘DE&I’) in organisations, communities, and the financial services industry.


This report has been authored by LGBT Great as a follow-up to the Top 100 Gamechangers (2022). It explores what it means to be a role model and the impact role models have on LGBTQ+ talent and other underrepresented communities across selected financial markets: the UK, the USA, Hong Kong, and Singapore.


The insights and commentary contained in this report are based on quantitative survey data (n=1,606), including a sizeable subpopulation of LGBTQ+ talent (n=662). The initial findings from this quantitative survey were further explored through in-depth qualitative interviews with role models from LGBT Great’s 2022 Top 100 Gamechangers programme and through a series of industry focus groups with LGBTQ+ talent and supportive allies.
