Pinsent Masons Partner ranked among LGBT pioneers

09 Oct 2014 | 11:31 am | 1 min. read

David Isaac, Partner and Head of the Advanced Manufacturing and Technology sector at international law firm Pinsent Masons, has been ranked as one of the top 100 LGBT business leaders.

David, who specialises in providing strategic advice on major outsourcing projects, has been recognised for his pioneering work in raising the profile of LGBT issues in the workplace.

He is the highest ranking lawyer on the list and joins several distinguished business leaders including Christopher Bailey, Chief Executive of Burberry, and Antionio Simoes, Chief Executive of HSBC in the ranking.

The league was compiled by UK-based OUTstanding in Business, a non-profit networking group that campaigns for LGBT rights in the workplace.

David says:

"I am delighted to appear on the OUTstanding in Business list, but more importantly I am pleased that LGBT leadership in business is being recognised. There has been real progress in relation to LGBT and diversity issues more generally in both the legal profession and other business sectors.  The challenge is to ensure we continue to work together to promote the business case for diversity across all diversity strands."

In addition to his role at Pinsent Masons, David was Chair of Stonewall between 2003 and 2013. He is a trustee of the Human Dignity Trust.

This is not the first such honour for David, who was awarded a CBE for services to equality and diversity in 2011.

Pinsent Masons is recognised as a leading employer on diversity issues. It has been ranked in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index for five consecutive years and is a signatory to the UK Government's 'Think, Act, Report' programme on gender diversity.
