By OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Model Lists 2019


For the fifth year in a row, Bloomberg Chairman Peter T. Grauer has been recognized as a top ally for the LGBT+ community in business. Published yesterday, Grauer ranks in the top 10 of the 2019 OUTstanding 50 Ally Executives List, which showcases the senior leaders who are outspoken and unwavering in their support for LGBT+ people in the workplace.

“We’re proud to see Peter recognized as a top ally for the LGBT+ community in business for the fifth consecutive year,” said company founder Michael Bloomberg. “Peter has always been committed to advancing diversity in the global workplace and to creating an environment where employees are empowered to be themselves and are respected.”

According to the awarding committee for the OUTstanding recognition, Grauer has been a “leading force behind Bloomberg’s diversity and inclusion efforts, believing firmly that everyone deserves respect and fair treatment, and that employees should feel comfortable being their authentic selves at work.”

Pamela Hutchinson, Bloomberg’s Global Head of Diversity and Inclusion, said, “It is with great pride for Bloomberg that Peter has once again been recognized for his commitment to the LGBT+ community in the workplace. When it comes to advocacy for diversity and inclusion, his commitment is steadfast and across all dimensions and this recognition is a very visible testament to that.”

The OUTstanding awarding committee wrote: “Peter’s commitment to equality is unwavering as he believes that senior leaders need to be the catalyst for change. He leads D&I Town Halls for employees, and mentors a new cohort each year of 12 individuals across multiple strands of diversity. Under Peter’s leadership, Bloomberg has launched a Pride podcast series, and seen an increase of nearly 27% in the membership of its LGBT+ and ally community, BPROUD, over the past year. Bloomberg has been named one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality, receiving a perfect score of 100 on the Human Rights Campaign Foundation’s Corporate Equality Index all three years.”

The committee added: “Peter is a vocal advocate for equality outside of Bloomberg as well, serving as the Founding Chairman of the U.S. 30% Club, comprised of Chair and CEO members committed to improving gender balance at all levels of organizations. Additionally, Peter served on the Out Leadership Global Advisory Board from 2013-2018, providing strategic advice on global initiatives focused on making LGBT+ equality a priority in global C-Suites.”
