Building a Scientific Culture That Supports Women
What can neuroscientists do to promote greater representation of women in the field, across the career spectrum?
In this video, SfN past presidents examine how individuals, institutions, and the scientific community at large can catalyze cultural change that allows all scientists to contribute fully.
“As a society, we can come together and recognize that there are common issues that are preventing young women, in particular, from achieving their goals and following their passion. As a society, I think we have a great opportunity to look and see where those common features are that a single institution might not,” says SfN President Diane Lipscombe.
This video is one of three in the SfN Presidents on Gender Diversity in Neuroscience interview series, part of an ongoing effort to increase all forms of diversity in neuroscience. Watch the other videos in this series, on the importance of gender parity and advice for the next generation of women.
