SfN honors women in neuroscience with the Celebration of Women in Neuroscience event each year at the SfN annual meeting.

The luncheon features a notable neuroscientist guest speaker, a slideshow featuring women leaders, and small-group discussions on issues of concern to women in neuroscience. The event typically draws more than 200 attendees including graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, PIs, department chairs, and institute heads, for a thoughtful and inspiring program. 

Recent guest speakers have included Carol Barnes, Phyllis Wise, Anne Young, and Barbara Sahakian. 

The 2014 Celebration of Women in Neuroscience Luncheon will be held on November 18 in Washington, DC. Marian Joëls, president of the Federation of European Neuroscience Societies, will deliver the keynote address, followed by a round table group discussion on implicit gender bias. Registration for the 2014 Celebration of Women in Neuroscience Luncheon is full. To be added to the communications list for next year's event, write to
