Herman Duarte, fundador y director de la firma Hduarte-LEX y la Fundación Igualitos, ocupó la posición 18 en el ranking “OUTstanding LGBT+Future Leaders” (Sobresalientes LGBT+Futuros Líderes por sus siglas en inglés) del prestigioso periódico inglés Financial Times.
Este medio realiza cuatro rankings en los que destaca a organizaciones y personas que hayan generado impacto en materia de diversidad, inclusión y derechos humanos.
“Las listas demuestran hasta donde ha llegado la búsqueda de la igualdad en el lugar de trabajo. Las grandes empresas y el sector público tienen el poder y la influencia para promover la inclusión LGBT más ampliamente”, dijo Suki Sandhu, fundador y CEO de OUTstanding.

Each nominee was scored on the seniority and influence of their role, their impact on LGBT+ inclusion inside and outside the workplace and their business achievements. Everyone included in the list has given their permission to be included. For the leading LGBT+ executive and ally executive lists, the nominee’s seniority and influence were taken into consideration. They must be visibly out or a vocal ally, actively working to create a positive environment for LGBT+ people. It was important that people were working towards this goal over and above their day job, which made it hard for the judges to consider diversity and inclusion professionals, however deserving. Future leaders are high-performing and high-potential individuals, but can be at various levels in their careers. A stronger emphasis was placed on their work regarding LGBT+ inclusion rather than their seniority.
Suki Sandhu, founder and chief executive of OUTstanding, explains the significance of this year’s lists: “There is no doubt that 2017 has been a difficult year for the LGBT+ cause. Yet the increased diversity within the lists and abundance of new faces shows the impact and power of role models across the globe. “I’m so proud to be celebrating more role models than ever before, and to be expanding our reach beyond the corporate world and into the public sector. When asked where I see the future of OUTstanding, I always say a world where we’re no longer needed. While we’re not quite there yet, the work of our incredible leaders is taking us in the right direction.”
