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.
