Quilter COO Karin Cook named as top LGBT+ ally

We’re delighted to announce that Quilter COO Karin Cook, executive sponsor of Quilter’s LGBT+ Group, features in one of this year’s OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Model Lists from Involve – The Inclusion People.

The 2020 OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Model Lists, supported by Yahoo Finance, are a powerful reflection of the incredible achievements of LGBT+ people and their allies in the business community. The lists are prepared by diversity and inclusion membership organisation ‘Involve’ and highlight role models for others to follow when it comes to driving positive change in the office and supporting LGBT+ colleagues.

Appointed Quilter’s Chief Operating Officer in January 2019, Karin is a passionate, committed and informed ally to the LGBT+ community.

She raises awareness and advocates for the importance of equality both internally and externally and is instrumental in efforts to break down barriers to opportunity. A prominent voice within the financial services industry, Karin has spoken on diversity and inclusion topics with LGBT Great, hosts a ‘Cuppa with Karin’ series alongside Southampton and Newcastle’s LGBT+ Community and has written articles in support of LGBT+ inclusion.

Quilter works hard to promote inclusion and diversity at work and within the financial services industry, reflecting a rich and diverse society, for the benefit of our employees, customers and stakeholders. Karin is spearheading diversity and inclusion initiatives at Quilter, leveraging and mobilising networks and structures to ensure that LGBT+ colleagues are heard and supported.
