How we break the Bias
Updated: May 27
his International Women's Day, we stand with the theme "Break the Bias" and emphasize the need for equity and representation in leadership roles as well as for women working within STEM. This annual day and call to action are also in conjunction with the exciting news that Athari Bio's CEO and Founder Susan Mitchell just received the Executive Leader Finalist Award from the Loudoun Chamber's Annual Meeting and Community Leadership Awards.
But we're not resting on our laurels: While women have made gains from 8% of STEM workers in 1970 to just now representing 27% of the field in recent years; we still have work to do.
Our genomic tests, immunodiagnostics, and professional development programs are a wellspring for — and of — health and empowerment. We leverage STEM not just for the sake of advancing science, but also because science stands to help us all live healthier, more vibrant lives.
This International Women's Day and tomorrow, how can we work together to break the bias?
Our team actively seeks collaboration and public-private partnerships; Athari's R&D is focused on population health, product commercialization and pipeline development that positively impacts individuals and their communities.
