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: https://t.co/mwZVwacsuG#VirginFamily
“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: https://t.co/pzGqzEdxJg@VirginStartUp#VirginFamily
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: https://t.co/AfAQQ2vq24@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: https://t.co/o4iowNDTsv
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 https://t.co/dlnoQ1j8Dd
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: https://t.co/GOVNtzq7Lw
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: https://t.co/IUtKxbFS90
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. https://t.co/q0aG71TM8u
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.
A great lesson from Dr Astro Teller:
“There is power in working passionately and power in pausing and looking dispassionately at results. We are trained to do the opposite, so this is quite hard to do.”

The Elders condemn Russia’s annexation of Ukrainian territories. They urge all UN member states not to recognise Russian authority in these regions, and publicly support Ukraine’s right to defend its territory and sovereignty.
We deplore President Putin’s threats to use nuclear weapons.
Any such threats are completely unacceptable. All UN states must unequivocally condemn this as a grave violation of international law and norms.
The Elders today visited #Bucha and #Irpin to understand further the atrocities commited by Russian forces there.
The world owes it to all those who continue to suffer, and to all the lives lost, to do all we can to help the Ukrainian people live in peace, dignity and freedom.
The Elders express thanks to @ZelenskyyUa and the Ukrainian people for welcoming us to Kyiv today.
Russia’s war on Ukraine is a moral outrage. The world must strongly resist the normalisation of its horror and injustice. Humanity must not look away.
We're delighted to see handmade embroidered napkins, crafted by the Berbers of Morocco with the support of the @EveBranson foundation, available with @VirginRed. Each napkin has been handmade and is one of a kind: https://t.co/x57taFnInp
