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.
