Earlier this year we launched our new strategy – built on an ambition to support more equitable ecosystems of research and knowledge. But we launched the strategy into a rapidly unfolding pandemic, which has shown even more strongly the inequities of our world, and of our knowledge systems.

This paper aims to identify some of those inequities, to think aloud about what they mean for knowledge, and to continue the discussion with others to help us understand better what needs to be done and the role we can play.
