Today, the 2021 HERoes Advocate Executives List was announced celebrating the 35 senior leaders who are championing and advocating for women in the workplace. Time Out Group CEO, Julio Bruno, has been selected as part of the index of leaders, which includes CEO’s from Diageo, WPP, Goldman Sachs, Blackrock and many more. Those named are striving towards removing career barriers for female employees within their business and industry and are dedicated to creating a more diverse and inclusive business environment. Throughout his career and at Time Out Group, Julio has always surrounded himself with a team of mixed genders, races and ethnicities. The leadership team Julio currently heads at Time Out has a 50:50 gender split. In addition, 58% of the whole workforce is female and there is no gender pay gap. The company’s HR recruitment process involves practicing blind recruitment, to avoid unconscious bias around hiring men over women, and insisting on a 50% minority candidate long list from any agencies used. During 2020, in response to the issues faced by working parents over the pandemic, Time Out created a family resource centre as a support to help with mental health and the time off needed while working and caregiving simultaneously. Every year Time Out celebrates International Women's Day, both internally and through the company’s media megaphone, and Julio actively encourages his editorial team to spotlight female owned businesses as well as minority-owned businesses.

San Francisco is the world’s number one city right now according to the fourth annual Time Out Index released today. The city’s unbeatable combination of progressiveness, acceptance and sustainability earned it the coveted top spot as the best city in the world for living and social life, followed by Amsterdam, Manchester, Copenhagen and New York. The hotly anticipated, annual Time Out Index combines the experiences and opinions of thousands of people in hundreds of cities around the world with the expertise of Time Out’s global network of local editors and city experts to capture and celebrate what makes a city great right now. The Time Out Index 2021 had more than 27,000 global participants and worked through the challenges of Covid-19 and lockdown restrictions to represent the soul of their cities. The cities were rated for eating and drinking, culture and nightlife, with more emphasis than ever on community spirit and environmental initiatives. Respondents shared how easy it is to do things like express themselves, make new friends and even hook up with people, in addition to relaxing and discovering new things. This year, editors posed questions around activism and community projects, sustainability and the importance of green spaces to gain insight into the cities thinking about the future as well as the now. Time Out crunched the numbers along with local expert knowledge to compile this year’s definitive ranking of the world’s best cities right now for living and socia

Today, Time Out, the global media and hospitality brand that helps people explore and experience the soul of the city, reveals its list of the 50 best cinemas in the UK and Ireland. The top ten features the Iconic BFI Southbank, not one but two historic picturehouses in Edinburgh, and an art deco Dublin theatre. With the majority of UK and Irish cinemas reopen again and big blockbuster releases on the horizon, Time Out’s global film editor Phil de Semlyen curated the ultimate guide to local cinemas to make it even easier for moviegoers to get back out and escape to another world for a couple of hours.  “The temporary closure of cinemas has left a huge gap in our lives over these past months, so we’ve set out to celebrate the moviegoing experience in all its variety,” said Phil de Semlyen, global film editor at Time Out. “There are close to 1000 cinemas in the British Isles and we’ve scoured them all, taking into consideration everything from pricing to programming, history to hospitality – and all with an eye for cinemas that connect deeply with their local communities. From cosy indies, to ultra-luxe modern picturehouses, to colossal multiplexes, to art deco one-screeners, these 50 cinemas represent the very best of British and Irish movie houses.” The cinema topping the list is The Stella Cinema in Dublin’s buzzy suburb of Rathmines, which was the largest cinema in Ireland when it opened in 1923. Now sympathetically restored, it features midnight screenings and a cocktail b

Time Out, the global media and hospitality brand that helps people explore and experience the soul of the city, was announced today as an official media partner for Copenhagen 2021 WorldPride and EuroGames. Copenhagen 2021 (12–22 August) is the world’s most significant LGBTI+ event taking place in 2021, where thousands of people will celebrate and advocate for LGBTI+ equality in Denmark and Sweden, countries often cited as being among the most progressive for equality and human rights. It’s the first time WorldPride and EuroGames have been combined, and the first time that either has been split across two cities in two countries. With COVID19 having affected the original event plans, digital channels are more important than ever to encourage the broadest possible participation of LGBTI+ people and activists from around the world – even those who can’t physically be at the events. That’s where Time Out comes in. The media partnership, activated across Time Out’s global network of websites and social media channels, will have a particular focus on the Drag Night event on Friday August 20 2021 in Copenhagen. Time Out’s editorial team will build excitement ahead of the event with line-up announcements, ticket giveaways and collaborations with performers to get their tips on enjoying the soul of each of their cities, culminating in a drive across digital and social media to encourage as many people as possible around the world to tune in to the Drag Night live stream.   Steve Tayl
