I have worked in the technical industry for over 30 years and completely understand the value to me and my colleagues of being authentic at work. This means being able to talk freely about my wife and children as well as champion the rights of the LGBT+ community. At Microsoft I really feel we live by our mission of empowering every organisation and person on the planet to do more: it’s not just a talking point.
