Pinsent Masons', David Isaac, has been ranked 29th in the Financial Times "OUTstanding and FT Top 100 LGBT Executives".

The rankings, published in the Financial Times special report on Executive Diversity, celebrate prominent professionals who have made a difference in the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender community.

Nominees were judged on a set of demanding criteria including looking at an individual's seniority and influence inside an organisation, being a role model, contribution to the LGBT inclusion both professionally and personally, successes and achievements in business and how much of a difference they have made by challenging stereotypes in business.

David Isaac, Head of the Advanced Manufacturing and Technology sector and Chair of the Diversity Steering Group at Pinsent Masons, was ranked alongside renowned leaders including Alan Joyce, the CEO of Qantas and Sander van ‘t Noordende, CEO of Products at Accenture.

David was listed in recognition of his work promoting LGBT issue across the business and the wider business community.

“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.”

David, who was the Chair of Stonewall from 2003 to 2012 and is a trustee of the Human Dignity Trust commented: “It’s a great honour to be listed in this year’s  FT Top 100 LGBT Executive rankings. Pinsent Masons is committed to promoting diversity across its workforce and has launched a number of important initiatives to support greater inclusivity in the workplace over the past 12 months, including rolling out its ‘Straight Allies’ programme which encourages all staff to support LGBT colleagues.”
