FleishmanHillard’s Christina Peach Named Top 10 LGBT+ Future Leader by British LGBT Awards
ST. LOUIS, February 11, 2020 — FleishmanHillard Fishburn’s Christina Peach has been named a Top 10 LGBT+ Future Leader by the British LGBT Awards 2020, earning a finalist nod in the category. The award recognizes LGBT+ individuals who have taken initiative to further the LGBT+ inclusion efforts within their workplace. A winner among the Top 10 nominees will be chosen by a panel of judges.
A founding member of OPEN Pride UK, Omnicom’s employee resource group dedicated to ensuring the personal and professional growth of LGBT+ employees and allies, Peach has a proven track record of improving and supporting the LGBT+ community inside and outside the office walls.
Additionally, she was integral to the launch of Thomson Reuters Foundation’s “Openly” campaign. An impartial newswire, dedicated to highlighting LGBT+ injustices and news from all over the world, Openly made a real impact and earned several awards, including Best Equality & Inclusion Cause Campaign from the PRWeek Campaign for Good Awards 2019 and the World’s Best Non-For-Profit Award from the ICCO Global Awards 2019.
As part of FleishmanHillard Fishburn’s newly launched ‘Youth and Culture’ team, Peach works on several consumer-facing accounts.
“Peach’s undying work and commitment have improved and supported the lives of the LGBT+ community outside of the PR and advertising industry. From changing the laws on the news agenda for Openly, talking on wider world views on panel discussions at Cannes Lions and being an advocate here for OPEN Pride between our walls and beyond to the network. Our Peach is making the world a better place. We couldn’t be more excited for her and this major recognition,” said Claire Barry, one of Peach’s FleishmanHillard colleagues.
The British LGBT Awards winners will be recognized at a ceremony on May 29 in London.
