Promoting Diversity, Fostering Excellence
Scientists from diverse backgrounds contribute important research to the field, but face unique challenges. We engage with the global community to empower these voices, strengthening the field.
Read the Twitter conversation @SfNTweets from June 10 for conversations around diversity, equity, and inclusion in neuroscience.
The Black Lives Matter Movement sparked a worldwide response indicating these issues have broad impact. SfN organized a panel discussion that took place July 2. A recording of the discussion is available for on-demand viewing.
See how SfN's programs and awards advance female and underrepresented neuroscientists worldwide.
