AMAF Executive Director Honored in Crain’s ‘Notable List of LGBTQ Executives’

AMA Foundation Executive Director, Barkley Payne, was honored by Crain’s Chicago as a 2020 Notable LGBTQ Executive. According to Crain’s author, Judith Crown, “This Notables section features 56 LGBTQ executives and 10 companies that champion diversity. A number of the honorees work for or support leading advocacy organizations, including AIDS Foundation of Chicago, Center on Halsted, Chicago House & Social Service Agency, Equality Illinois and Howard Brown Health. These Notables are working at small businesses and large corporations, arts organizations and nonprofits. Typically, they started or sponsor employee resource groups and serve on diversity and inclusion councils with an eye to breaking down the barriers that keep LGBTQ people from advancing to leadership positions. And they mentor colleagues informally or in structured settings to help them get ahead.”

Barkley Payne shared that, “I was incredibly honored to have been nominated for inclusion in Crain’s Notable List of LGBTQ Executives, but to actually make the list is amazing! I am beyond proud to be featured among this distinguished group of Chicago executives and businesses who champion diversity and inclusion!”
