He comments: "I am the executive ally sponsor for the LGBT+ network at Fidelity because I have a strong belief in creating a working environment where everyone feels comfortable being themselves, and where all are treated equitably. Allyship for me is about working to help everybody feel included, valued and comfortable being themselves, and this is the spirit at the very heart of Fidelity. I am extremely proud of my LGBT+ colleagues, friends and family and the ongoing work we all do at Fidelity to help everyone feel welcome and included. Fidelity is proud be to an original founding member of LGBT Great and together we have made fantastic progress on the agenda as an organisation."
