Event details


Neuroscience is stronger with diverse perspectives. Although there have been gains in the percentage of underrepresented neuroscience researchers in recent years, there is still more work to be done to increase representation of diverse researchers and to create inclusive and equitable research environments. On July 2nd, 12:00 – 1:00 pm EDT, SfN will host a panel discussion called, “Black Lives Matter and Neuroscience: Why this moment matters.” The discussion will be moderated by Joanne Berger-Sweeney, PhD, and will feature Nii Addy, PhD, Marguerite Matthews, PhD, and Fitzroy ‘Pablo’ Wickham. During the discussion, our panelists will speak about challenges diverse neuroscientists face within the field and provide guidance on how the neuroscience community can leverage this moment to influence change. Additionally, the panel will discuss the impact of COVID-19 on the tenure clock for junior faculty, and how that impacts faculty of color. Neuroscientists of all backgrounds are encouraged to attend and contribute to the discussion.
