As CEO, David promotes a culture that celebrates diversity and inclusion at all levels. He’s launched ‘Be You at Bupa’ – the company’s public commitment to inclusion – and also sponsors colleagues from underrepresented groups. Under David’s leadership this year, Bupa has made strides in mitigating unconscious bias in recruiting, and continues to outperforming diversity benchmarks. It has over 1,000 colleagues undertaking apprenticeships and contemplation spaces and faith rooms in all its major offices. Bupa also participates in EMpower’s cross-company mentoring program, and support calls for mandatory ethnicity pay gap reporting. Last year, David also became the first signatory to the ‘Leaders as Change Agents’ government-backed pledge, which sets out to champion D&I in business. He is also Chairman at HomeServeUK, where he has supported the creation of a D&I Council.
