As Co-Chair of the Credit Suisse LGBT+ & Ally Network she has helped manage growth of the EMEA network from 110 to 1,300 members over the past 5 years, particularly through championing work place LGBT+ role models.
Sonia is a passionate believer in the personal and business benefit of visible Ally presence in the workplace.

His clients span from financial services to consumer products and beyond. Chad served as the Co-Chair of EY Unity UK&I for a number of years inspiring growth, intersectionality development as well as influencing policy change within the organization. As Co-Chair Emeritus he now serves as an advisor to the network while supporting continued D&I efforts. His focus on diversity and inclusion includes being a founding member for EY America’s LGBT+ network, Unity (formerly bEYond); a leading advocate for the repeal of DADT in the US as a US Air Force veteran; and exercising global reach with contributing design oversight to the Australia Marriage Equality campaign. He’s been recognised and awarded for his design work by Graphic Design USA and IABC.
