Being a leader in inclusion and equality plays a fundamental role in driving LGIM's culture, a key part of our strategy and recognising the importance of LGIM's purpose for engagement and driving change through our people to achieve positive long-term outcomes for our clients. Raising awareness and support for LGBT+ inclusion has made huge strides across the business which is incredibly powerful for our people across the globe. Our partnership with LGBT Great enabled me to learn and understand what Allyship' means and how I can play my role as a vocal and visible leader and be better able to support our people and offices in Asia. Building on our inclusive culture, creating a sense of belonging and enabling a great workplace for our people will help us drive positive and sustainable change on equality.
