David González Natal, Partner and Managing Director of LATAM North at LLYC, has been named one of the 100 Most Influential LGBTIQ+ Leaders in Mexico 2024. This list, part of the third annual edition launched by MIT Sloan Management Review Mexico, recognizes individuals who have significantly contributed to equality, representation, and social justice in various fields such as activism, the arts, politics, education, and business.

David González Natal has an outstanding professional career in communication and marketing, characterized by his constant innovation and the humanization of organizations. He holds a degree in Journalism from the Complutense University of Madrid and a Global CCO title from ESADE. David has led operations in Mexico, Panama, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, the Caribbean, and Central America, amassing over 250 international awards, including several Cannes Lions and Clio Awards.

His commitment to social improvement extends beyond leading the Diversity and Inclusion Committee for LATAM North at LLYC. It is also reflected in initiatives like Rainbot, an artificial intelligence bot that turns hate messages on social media into expressions of support for the LGBTIQ+ community. He also led Transparentes by Fundación LLYC, promoting the employment inclusion of the trans community in Spain. Another project is Puertas de Esperanza, in collaboration with the Casa Frida shelter and the Hilario Galguera Gallery, which repurposes doors from abandoned homes to reinterpret stories of resilience and bravery through art.

Recently, he spearheaded Free the Voices at LLYC, the first bank of diverse synthetic voices created from the voices of over 250 people from the LGBTIQ+ community, reflecting human vocal diversity and promoting inclusion in the digital ecosystem. He has also participated in the creation of projects like Stayhuman, a platform dedicated to the humanization of organizations.

“Ensuring diversity and inclusion in organizations is essential to create environments where each person feels safe to develop and explore their ideas, as well as to be authentic and express their identity with pride. In this way, we are not only fostering creative and efficient teams, but we are also building a more inclusive world,” shares David.

Thanks to leaders like David González Natal, LLYC strengthens its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. His initiatives not only improve representation within the firm but also set a high standard for the industry at large. This vision has earned him the certification from the Human Rights Campaign Foundation – Equidad MX, distinguishing LLYC Mexico and BESO by LLYC offices as “Best Places to Work for LGBTQ+ People” in Mexico.
