  1. 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.
