PODCAST: Being part of the LGBT+ community and working in finance
In IFLR's latest podcast, we spoke to London Stock Exchange Group portfolio director Arlene McDermott about working in finance and being part of the LGBT+ community
For IFLR's latest podcast, we spoke to Arlene McDermott, portfolio director at London Stock Exchange Group's LCH, about working in the financial services industry and being part of the LGBT+ community. McDermott is co-chair of Proud, LSEG’s LGBT+ affinity network and recently featured in the Pride Power List and Diva Magazine’s Visible Lesbian 100 List.
Following our discussion with Laurie Robinson-Haden, founder and CEO of Corporate Counsel Women of Color, we decided to continue to look at the experience of being part of a minority group and working in financial services.
Here, McDermott talks to us about her personal journey, how to make your organisation LGBT+ friendly, and how culture and attitudes have changed in the City of London during the last few decades.
