Advancing Women, Advancing Therapies


We are a group of women and allies who are determined to make an impact in the advanced therapies community! Despite the rapid growth and development of the cell and gene therapy space, there’s still a significant skills gap at all levels – from entry-level to board positions. We firmly believe that diversity and inclusion are the keys to unlocking untapped market space, retaining top talent, and staying ahead of the competition.

Our goal is to build a community of women who can support each other, share experiences, and pave the way for the next generation of leaders in advanced therapies. So join us and help create a more inclusive and diverse environment in the life sciences industry!

Being a mentor is an opportunity to reflect on yourself as well as support others. I’m pretty sure my mentee will agree that we both got a lot out of it – I certainly did!  So if you think you can spare an hour or so a month to take time out to grab a coffee and chat with an inspirational individual at a different stage of career to you, then just go for it, it’s so worth it!

The WIAT mentorship program is a fantastic initiative and I am delighted to be part of the network. I was paired with a mentor from a biotech company in the US who I would probably not have had chance to interact with outside of the program. My mentor is a great sounding board who both supports me and challenges my thinking, and has helped shape how I approach my work.
