NEW YORK, Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- New York City CEO Robyn Streisand joins Ellen DeGeneres and Tom Ford on OUT magazine's 2016's OUT100 list, an annual event which honors the world's most compelling lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals. Streisand's appearance on the high-profile list is credited to her role as a thought leader in contemporary marketing.
OUT magazine is the leading publication providing an LGBT perspective on style, entertainment, fashion, the arts, politics, culture and the world at large. Their much-anticipated list of honorees includes actors, writers, politicians, activists, athletes and entrepreneurs. On Streisand's inclusion, the magazine cited Streisand's mastery of marketing and the visibility she had brought to the LGBT community.
As the founder and CEO of The Mixx, a branding and strategic marketing firm, the executive demonstrated to clients like Disney and Mercedes-Benz the merits of including LGBT audiences in their marketing efforts. "It means the world to me that OUT magazine is recognizing my contributions and that, after years of looking forward to seeing who made the OUT100 list, I am one of the honorees," says Streisand. "This honor does not belong to me alone, but to all those who said 'Let's do this!' along the way."
Streisand pioneered New York City's first chapter of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce and recently founded Titanium Worldwide, the world's first-ever collective of certified-diverse companies. The innovative agency model not only allows corporations to better promote diversity in their business operations, but signifies the growing number of companies embracing change in their culture.
As Streisand encourages recognition of the LGBT community through marketing, the OUT100 galvanizes support for her efforts and those of everyone on the list, drawing greater attention to the extraordinary LGBT community. For the total list of this year's honorees, go to www.out.com.
