“OUTstanding CEO and founder Suki Sandhu said, “We are delighted to see David Isaac from Pinsent Masons featuring in this year’s OUTstanding & Financial Times Top LGBT Executive list.
David is a true role model, proving that you can be openly LGBT in business and be a huge success. I’m certain they will provide inspiration to anyone who fears that they may have to be closeted at work, and waste valuable effort muting their authentic selves. He deserves credit for the leadership they show in welcoming people of all backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities.”
