Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion
World Women in Neuroscience has signed the ALBA Declaration on Equity and Inclusion, to raise awareness and provide a concrete set of actions that individuals and institutions can commit to undertaking in order to make their organizations, and neuroscience in general, more equitable and inclusive. It focuses on 1) recognizing and overcoming implicit biases, and 2) creating healthy workplace cultures. To learn more and sign the declaration, visit http://www.alba.network/declaration.
The ALBA diversity podcast, an initiative by the ALBA Promotion of Diversity Task Force, highlights diverse profiles of neuroscientists, to showcase the grit and determination it takes to overcome hurdles as part of underrepresented groups in brain research. ALBA’s podcaster, Dr. Shruti Muralidhar, talks to researchers across positions, career paths and backgrounds, to better understand their personal journeys, and what keeps them going as individuals and as neuroscientists in today’s world.
