He comments: "I am an LGBT+ ally because it is a moral imperative to ensure that everyone feels able to bring their true selves to work. It is also a business imperative to build a diverse and inclusive workplace to secure the best and brightest talent for our clients and investors. I dedicate time to learning about my LGBT+ colleagues by sponsoring the firm's inclusion network and regularly engaging in awareness building conversations. This enables me to put myself in their shoes and helps me to understand how I can support."
