Pinsent Masons' David Isaac has been ranked in the OUTstanding LGBT+ Role Models 2019 list.
David, who is a Partner at Pinsent Masons and Chair of the firm's Diversity Steering Group, is also Chair of the Equality and Human Rights Commission. In his various roles he speaks frequently about the importance of diversity and human rights.
OUTstanding is part of INvolve, a global organisation championing diversity and inclusion in business. The annual list recognises and celebrates business leaders and future leaders who are breaking down barriers at work and inspiring the next generation of diverse talent. Nominees were considered for their impact on LGBT+ inclusion inside and outside the workplace, their business achievements, and the seniority and influence of their role.
David Isaac, who also recently received Chambers Lifetime Achievement Award for Diversity & Inclusion, said:
"Role models and allies play such an important role in demonstrating that every individual is supported and encouraged to be themselves inside and outside of the workplace. When people are comfortable in bringing their whole selves to work and are operating in an environment where they are happy, they thrive. I'm proud to be listed alongside a range of individuals who are also helping others to progress on their own personal journeys."
Suki Sandhu OBE, Founder & CEO of INvolve, says:
"We’re delighted to be celebrating another fantastic group of people from across the globe who are collectively driving cultural change and creating workplaces where everyone can succeed. LGBT+ discrimination is still prevalent in a lot of the world’s biggest economies, but highlighting the work of successful role models changes people's perceptions. They demonstrate that you can be successful and out at work, but most importantly inspire the next generation of LGBT+ leaders."
