100 actions to smash the LGBT+ Leadership Gap

By | LGBT Leaders, RAHM | No Comments

RAHM – The Global LGBT+ Leadership Contest & Community brings together the most outstanding present and future LGBT+ leaders in the world. Through a worldwide network and many events, we connect, inspire and support the next generation of LGBT+ leaders.

According to new studies, LGBT+ people are less likely than otherwise similar heterosexual men to attain the highest-level managerial positions that come with increased status and pay. These studies prove that the LGBT+ glass ceiling is real. The RAHM Global LGBT+ Leadership Community’s objective is to bring together the most outstanding LGBT+ minds and smash the Leadership Gap together.

The RAHM Impact Day took place on July 15th 2018 in London with more than 60 LGBT+ leaders from all around the world, from young talented students to top executives, selected for their outstanding skills, achievements and visions. They have been challenged to create a one-of-a-kind tool in just one day, in order to overturn the LGBT+ Leadership Gap and finally came me up with more than 100 concrete and realistic solutions.


The issues addressed are the following ones:

  • Pinkwashing
  • Discriminations in the workplace
  • Becoming an LGBT+ leader
  • Belonging to multiple minority groups
  • Proudly joining a new organisation
  • Initiating an LGBT+ themed project
  • Facing discrimination as LGBT+ Leader
  • Bringing more LGBT+ women into leadership positions


For each topic the participants came up with concrete, implementable and shareable action plans, which can be found here: www.rahm.ceo/100-actions-featuring-what-you-can-do-to-smash-the-lgbt-leadership-gap.


The RAHM Impact Day was organised by UHLALA (Berlin), hosted at the White City Place in London and supported by SAP, Stanhope LTD, Mitsui Fudosan, AIMCo and Unleash Leadership.
