He comments: "Safety and Freedom are cornerstones of human experience, professionally and personally, and supporting LGBT+ initiatives is an essential component of ensuring both safety and freedom. This is not only for the benefit of LGBT+ employees, but also as a statement to all employees about what we stand for. Ultimately, supporting LGBT+ initiatives liberates the whole organisation."
