  • COVID-19

    The Duke of Cambridge joined our CEO Pascal Soriot, Mene Pangalos, and representatives from University of Oxford, and CEPI (Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations), and Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance via video call to hear about how we are taking a partnership approach to deliver a vaccine for COVID-19. The group discussed its shared commitment to making the vaccine available in a global, equitable and timely way, at no profit during the pandemic. The Duke also visited the University of Oxford to learn about the science behind the vaccine and meet clinical trial participants.

  • Beyond #Pride taking place each June, our efforts to cultivate an inclusive workplace culture for everyone, including those in the LGBTQIA+ community, are always ongoing. We're focused on making tangible progress year-round to advance equality for all
