Wonderful to see @VirginAtlantic update its gender identity policy to let cabin crew, pilots and ground teams choose which Vivienne Westwood uniform they wear, so everyone can feel like themselves at work. Brilliant work: #VirginFamily

Virgin Atlantic has introduced an update to its gender identity policy that allows cabin crew, pilots and ground team to choose which of the iconic uniforms best represents them – no matter their gender, gender identity or gender expression.
“If you've got an idea, you should go for it. It doesn't matter if it's not polished. Just go out there and test the waters.” Advice I firmly agree with, shared by the co-founder of @TiwaniHeritage, Carol Lathbridge:

In Conversation about... Fair Criminal Records Checks - with Richard Branson and Paula Harriott
In this week’s episode, Edwina focuses on the UK’s criminal record system. She speaks to two supporters of the Fair Checks campaign led by Transform Justice and Unlock, which is calling for a fresh start to the UK’s outdated criminal records system. Richard Branson, Founder of Virgin, discusses why no one should be judged by their worst moment, and the commitment of Virgin companies around the world to offering employment opportunities for those with a criminal record. As well as building Virgin from the ground up, Richard has spent his life speaking up globally about the issues he is passionate about, including ending the failed war on drugs, and abolishing the death penalty. Paula Harriott, Head of Prisoner Involvement at Prison Reform Trust then speaks from first-hand experience about the adverse impact excessive criminal record checks can have, and why she supports the Fair Checks campaign. Paula has huge insight into the impact current legislation has on the ground through her work supporting those with experience of prison to have their voices heard, including through the national Prisoner Policy Network.

Such a lovely piece from Holly about the childhood adventures we took her and Sam on when they were little. So happy they share my love of adventure, and have instilled it in our grandkids now too: @HollyBranson @sambranson
After almost 7 months full-scale war in Ukraine, volunteers & non-profit organisations are the primary contributors addressing its horrific consequences. Elena Helmy, who works at @VirginUnite reflects on the need to support Ukrainian grassroots efforts:
Everyone knows the "referendums" in Russian-occupied territories of Ukraine are a complete sham. The 1.6 million Ukrainian people forced into Russia can't vote, nor can millions more who have been forced to flee - and Russia will fix the outcome anyhow
Huge respect for the many brave women who are shedding their hijabs and cutting their hair on the frontlines of public protest in Iran. The young generation taking to the street are the country’s future. Read my thoughts on Iran:
Universal Music Group has launched Virgin Music Group under the leadership of some brilliant music entrepreneurs. Music has been at the heart of the Virgin Group since the very beginning, so it’s exciting to see this continue:

This is truly Putin’s war now. The desperation of a man consumed by his delusions. The people of Russia must rise up against the regime, stop the killing and return to the family of nations. With Putin and his cronies, the only future is defeat and demise.
Ukraine Live Updates: Putin Mobilizes More Troops and Rails Against West
In a rare address to Russia, the Russian president made a veiled threat of using nuclear weapons. Speaking at the United Nations, President Biden said the war was “about extinguishing Ukraine’s right to exist.”
Loved watching Gutsy– a @HiddenLightPrd documentary series. @sambranson founded the company with @HillaryClinton & Chelsea Clinton to tell stories that celebrate human spirit. Gutsy follows some brilliant women who are changing the world in different ways:
It’s been deeply moving to see the beautiful tributes from around the world remembering and celebrating the life and reign of the most incredible queen, Queen Elizabeth II. She was an exceptional monarch who embodied the very best of Britain.
