In 2021 BAE Systems established company-wide support of core diversity and inclusion themes within the organization to ensure leadership support, action and accountability. As Group Managing Director, David volunteered to partner with the strategic theme lead for race and ethnicity and their ERG, Embrace, to shine a spotlight and drive positive changes around race, ethnicity, and religion in the workplace. He has raised awareness and visibility of the ERG, helping it grow by 31%. In addition, he has supported the establishment of new subgroups, such as Understanding Islam which won a Chairman’s Award. David sponsored group-wide objectives for recruitment and more diverse recruitment avenues such as the use of partners like MindWeaver and has also been involved in the review of the internal ethics process and the proactive review and assurance of no bias in reporting and resolution.
