QBE Australian and New Zealand CRO Mark Baxter has been acknowledged as one of the country's Outstanding 50 Lesbian Gay Bisexual Trans or Intersex (LGBTI)  leaders in a list announced 8 May.

Australia's Outstanding 50 LGBTI Leaders of 2018 list was announced by Deloitte and Google Australia to further develop workplace inclusion and create role models for LGBTI workers.

This marks the second inclusion for a QBE leader with the insurer's interim group CRO, Liam Buckley, named on the inaugural list in 2016.

Baxter said he was honoured to be named as one of the outstanding 50 LGBTI leaders for 2018.

“To be acknowledged among such a high calibre of Australian leaders, is truly humbling. Initiatives like this are important to shine a light on the diverse roles people in the LGBTI community play.

“Inclusion in the workplace is something I'm passionate about – being your whole self is empowering and we know it creates a happier, healthier, productive and ultimately more successful culture.”
