Charities We Support
The Turing Trust - Turing House
Shackleton Foundation - Shackleton House
The Shackleton Foundation improves the lives of disadvantaged young people across the UK. We do this through our unique leadership investment programme, inspired by legendary explorer Sir Ernest Shackleton’s incredible courage and resilience in the face of adversity.
They support social entrepreneurs who embody the leadership spirit of Shackleton; brave innovators with a creative vision to directly improve the lives of socially and economically marginalised young people.
The Rosalind Franklin Society - Franklin House
The Rosalind Franklin Society is an honorific, interdisciplinary, and international society which recognizes, fosters, and advances the important contributions of women in the life sciences and affiliated disciplines. In so doing, the Society honors the under-recognized achievements of the late Rosalind Franklin (1920-1958), a British x-ray crystallographer whose work producing x-ray images of DNA was crucial in the discovery of its structure by James Watson and Francis Crick.
Toward accomplishing its mission, the Society works to enable women to achieve more tenure-track appointments in academia as well as leadership positions in industry, academia, and government. As these goals are achieved, the Society communicates them to the scientific community and to talented young women to motivate them to pursue science as a profession.
