Cicero becomes first corporate communications agency to join OUTstanding

As part of its commitment to create a more open and inclusive workplace, integrated communications agency Cicero Group is today announcing its membership of social enterprise, OUTstanding, the professional network for LGBT+ executives and future leaders and their allies.

OUTstanding exists to drive change in the business world by broadening the boardroom diversity debate beyond gender or race to include LGBT+ issues. Its members, which already include EY, Google, Barclays and BP, are committed to removing any perceived barriers to the top for LGBT+ employees.

As a full member of OUTstanding, Cicero Group will enjoy multiple benefits such as bespoke leadership development programmes to support both today’s and tomorrow’s leaders, a successful international mentoring programme and access to diverse events attended by some of the most senior leaders in business.

Cicero Group becomes the first corporate communications agency to join the OUTstanding network.

Iain Anderson, Executive Chairman, Cicero Group, said: “As an organisation that prides itself on a culture of inclusion and diversity, I am thrilled that Cicero Group has joined the OUTstanding network. The communications sector benefits hugely from its diversity, and I am certain that OUTstanding will help us to better understand and overcome the barriers that hold back LGBT+ workers.”

Mr Suki Sandhu, Founder & CEO of OUTstanding said: “We are delighted to embark on this exciting partnership with Cicero Group. It is only by recognising the social and business value of inclusive leadership, peer networking and the power of role models, that everyone can really be themselves at work. With increased trust between colleagues and better support for customers, we can all prosper and achieve our common purposes.”
