Introducing our new podcast series, which sees our global graduates in conversation with our senior leaders.
To mark International Day of Women and Girls in Science, we shine a light on the achievements of our female scientists.
The people who help make us the company we are today take centre stage in our company video, We are BAT.
The video presents our business through the eyes of our employees and those we work with around the world. Among those we hear from are a farmer whose family has been supplying us with tobacco for three generations and BAT scientists involved in developing a next generation of potentially reduced-risk products.
We believe their stories show who we are: a progressive company that’s proud of its heritage and excited about the future.

In the video above, our R&D experts – from a range of areas including toxicology, chemistry and product safety – share their professional journeys and explore what motivates them.
From pursuing a childhood passion to carving out a career in global research, our scientists explain what they do, why they love it and how they have further developed their skills at BAT.
Principal Science Manager, Dr Summer Hanna, said working alongside curious scientists was one of the most enjoyable parts of her role.
“You’re surrounded by scientists who want to go to the next level, who are passionate about their jobs and are passionate about building a culture that empowers our scientists to learn and explore,” Summer said.
Linsey Haswell, a scientist in the Pre-clinical team, explains how working with a diverse team of scientists pushes her to be her best. Linsey said: “R&D is such a diverse community and it’s great to work here. I have learned so much over the years and we have lovely people here who are always willing to spend their time and learn with you. I think this has really shaped my career not just as a scientist, but also as a woman in business.”
Dr David O’Reilly, Director, Scientific Research, said: “Our industry is changing rapidly, and we are at the forefront of this momentous change. I’m pleased we are marking this important day by shining the spotlight on some of our incredibly talented scientists who are accelerating our transformation and pushing our company forward.”
