Who We Are

Gender Equity Think Tank (GETT)

The leading industry think tank of healthcare and life sciences companies dedicated to accelerating gender equity and inclusion in the workplace.

At the award-winning Gender Equity Think Tank, powered by the HBA, we're not just advocating for change—we're driving it. Together, our think tank of trailblazing organizations are creating systemic progress towards an equitable work environment, particularly for women who have been traditionally underrepresented and underestimated.

Our Mission: Empowering Through Unity

We represent an esteemed group of organizations, each contributing to a collective force that's rewriting the norms. Together, we're ushering in an era where gender equity is not just an aspiration, but a lived reality. Our collaborative spirit transcends boundaries, driving tangible progress and dismantling barriers that have held back women for far too long.

Why Gender Equity Matters

At the heart of our mission lies an unassailable truth – gender parity isn't just about fairness; it's a catalyst for growth, innovation, and a stronger future. By championing diversity and inclusion, we're not only amplifying the voices of women but invigorating our industry as a whole. It's more than a goal; it's a shared responsibility to create lasting change.

Our Approach: Walking the Talk

We don't just talk about change; we make it happen. By bringing together senior executives to explore the systemic and organizational changes needed, we’re developing actionable strategies based on data, insights, and collaboration to accelerate parity for women in the healthcare and life-science industries. We’re committed to fostering an environment of openness and trust in which members feel comfortable sharing challenges, as well as best practices, often leading to breakthrough insights.
