He comments: "Seeing friends, colleagues and relatives impacted by exclusion personalizes for many of us our efforts to foster inclusion. LGBT+ role models, and the LGBT+ allies who support them, help inspire all of us to redouble our efforts to create a more inclusive society. It is inspiring to see the investments and retirement industry make progress on the LGBT+ inclusion agenda, although there is still a great deal to be done. We at Mercer are proud to be part of this effort."
