Everyone should feel empowered to bring their whole self to work. Last Saturday, at London Pride 2018, we proudly marched with the proud science alliance, a partnership between Wellcome, The Francis Crick Institute, GlaxoSmithKline/ViiV Healthcare, Eli Lilly, Pfizer, Simmons & Simmons and ourselves – connecting LGBTQ+ Employees and Allies across the Life Sciences Sector.
Last year, our employees volunteered more than 29,000 hours on projects in countries around the world. Wherever we work, we aim to make a positive impact on our local communities. On International Volunteer Day, we would like to thank all of our employees who have volunteered in their local community.

A Huge Congratulations to Joseph Jackson on winning joint 'Apprentice of the Year,' at the North East Cheshire Business Awards on Friday evening.
Tracey Cosgrave from Macclesfield College, the sponsors of the award, said that the judges "were amazed at the standard of the entries that were received. The three finalists are all great ambassadors for apprenticeships and are a credit to themselves and their employers’. We couldn’t split the final decision, so we have joint winners of the Apprentice of the Year award.”
A Huge thank you to all of those who participated in Manchester Pride. Great to see so many employees living our values.
