Our diversity commitment
We are committed to building a team that represents a diversity of thought, experience and background. We recently reviewed our D&I efforts and have put in place clear strategic targets to work towards. We don’t want to be just pumping out the usual platitudes.

We have set strategic D&I goals across the business and have put a number of key initiatives in place to help us achieve them. They are:

We welcomed the Myotubular Trust team into our London office recently to find out more about the work they do and present them with a cheque for £32,851.
That’s what we raised in 2020 and comes off the back of our Black Tie event that included a company-wide raffle and auction.
It was fantastic to hear about the charity’s upcoming clinical trial and great to know we’re ale to help with the fundraising so far able to cover 50% of the clinical trial costs.
We’re all keen to help as much as possible and look forward to more charity events throughout the year.
From the Myotbular Trust
"We are delighted to announce that the Myotubular Trust are co-funding a clinical trial with the charity arm of the world-renowned Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH), and Sparks, the children’s medical research charity. This is following our joint research grant call in 2019. It is a real honour to be partners in the UK’s largest charitable grant-making scheme of its kind, dedicated to paediatric rare disease research."
