OUTstanding LGBT+ Future Leaders

Our colleague Jake Furby, our Communications Manager since March was nominated to OUTstanding LGBT+ Future Leaders Role Model List 2021.

We are delighted to share that they have been recognized as one of the Top 100 LGBT+ future leaders this year. Staff and Trustees at Friends Provident Foundation are proud and delighted that Jake’s activism and commitment, which stretches before their appointment at FPF, has been internationally recognised.

Charitable foundations are not generally known for their activist positions, yet many of the great charitable traditions and our commitment to social and economic progress are informed by the energy and drive for justice of staff and trustees. Our current work to understand and address equity and social justice is no different; our exploration has been enriched by the diverse backgrounds and lived experiences of colleagues and partners. In particular, Jake has brought great sensitivity, expertise and good humour to our efforts.

Congratulations to them and to the other OUTstanding role models for 2021.
