  1. Use community hashtags as you would on social media (e.g., Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc) to help those who may be interested in that topic or grouping to be able to find it in a search. The intent is to create a sense of community within a virtual environment and to help you connect with others with similar interests. This field is entirely optional and can be left blank, but feel free to get creative. For example, you could coordinate with your lab to use a lab hashtag, or with collaborators on a special project hashtag; you can use them to identify communities within neuroscience (e.g., #blackinneuro, or #FUN for faculty of undergraduate neuroscience). Here are some hashtags to start with! #FUN #blackinneuro #NSPeeps #BLM #seekingpostdocposition
  2. The Black Lives Matter Movement sparked a worldwide response indicating these issues have broad impact. On July 2, SfN hosted a webinar called, “Black Lives Matter and Neuroscience: Why This Moment Matters.” During the webinar, panelists Nii Addy, PhD, Marguerite Matthews, PhD, and Fitzroy ‘Pablo’ Wickham spoke about the challenges that diverse neuroscientists face within the field and provided guidance on how the neuroscience community can leverage this moment to influence change. Join SfN and the panelists Friday, September 4 from 1 – 2 p.m. EDT as they continue their conversation and take additional questions within the Neuronline Community forum. Neuroscience is stronger with diverse perspectives and neuroscientists of all backgrounds are encouraged to attend and contribute to the live discussion. Those who are not able to attend are encouraged to post questions in this discussion thread in advance of the live event and read through the discussion at a later date. Nii Addy, PhD Nii Addy is an associate professor of psychiatry and of cellular and molecular physiology at Yale School of Medicine. He received his B.S. in biology from Duke University and his PhD in neuroscience from Yale University. Addy directs a federally funded research program investigating the neurobiological bases of substance abuse, depression and anxiety. Addy’s team also studies the ability of tobacco product flavor additives to alter nicotine use behavior and addiction. He contributes to graduate student and postdoctoral training, faculty mentoring, and diversity, equity and inclusion programs and initiatives through his work on campus and his work in professional scientific societies. Marguerite Matthews, PhD Marguerite Matthews is a health program specialist in the office of programs to enhance neuroscience workforce diversity at the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS). Matthews received her B.S. in biochemistry from Spelman College and her PhD in neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh. She completed her postdoctoral fellowship in behavioral neuroscience at the Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU), where she also served as program director for the Youth Engaged in Science (YES!) outreach initiative, and program director for the OHSU Fellowship for Diversity in Research Program to recruit and retain postdoctoral researchers from underrepresented backgrounds. As a program specialist, Matthews supports NINDS diversity initiatives and programs that provide neuroscience research training and career development for students and early career investigators from underrepresented backgrounds. Matthews is a former participant in the Neuroscience Scholars Program and currently serves as a mentor. Fitzroy Wickham Fitzroy ‘Pablo’ Wickham is a Jamaican-born Wesleyan undergraduate double majoring in neuroscience and theater with a minor in chemistry. Wickham is a research assistant in the Naegele Lab at the Wesleyan University conducting stem cell research to treat temporal lobe epilepsy in mice. On campus, he serves as a head resident for Residential Life, senior class president, and an honor board/community standards board member. He is involved in student theater, mock trial, and the Jamaican Heritage Club, YAADI. His aspirations are to become a neurosurgeon, researcher, and actor. Please remember to follow the Digital Learning Community Guidelines here when participating in the Live Chat.
  3. On July 2 at 12 p.m. EDT, members of SfN and the neuroscience community will be hosting 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 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. Learn more and register for this webinar on Neuronline. The panelists will also be available to chat with in this thread after the webinar has concluded and will continue the conversations stemming from the webinar.

    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. Register for this event on Neuronline. This event is free and open, so please share with your neuroscience network outside of SfN.
