It is our responsibility
to engage society

Breakthroughs in biotech could change the world for the better, yet raise important ethical questions that can’t be answered by scientists and investors alone. Rather than shy away from these tough questions, we believe it is our responsibility to confront them head on.

To this end, we collaborate with partners worldwide to engage others in industry, academia, leaders, and civil society in this critical dialogue.

“How can we ensure that our most cherished
values guide the application of our most powerful technologies?”

Special Edition: Leaps x The New York Times Climate Hub

As world leaders gathered in Glasgow for COP26, The New York Times Climate Hub became a physical and virtual gathering bringing together citizens, scientists, inventors, academics, delegates, and journalists to answer the most urgent question of our times: How do we adapt and thrive on a changing planet? Leaps was proud to collaborate as a supporting sponsor of The New York Times Climate Hub.

The event featured a series of talks, that all of which are available to be viewed on-demand, with prominent speakers such as Al Gore, John Kerry, and many more.
