Founded by INvolve, a global network and consultancy that champions diversity and inclusion in business, and supported by Yahoo Finance, the OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Model Lists highlight the achievements of LGBT+ people in the business community. The list is published annually and showcases 100 LGBT+ executives and future leaders, along with 50 ally executives.

Leading the global Allies awareness program, Shelley was influential in increasing membership numbers for Embrace. She recently moved into a Global Inclusion & Belonging role within the company to focus on and collaborate with all networks to help them with their inclusion journeys.
