The Importance of Gender Parity
What does gender parity in neuroscience look like? How has the field evolved in this respect, and what work remains to be done?
In this video, SfN past presidents consider the role of gender diversity in scientific discovery and what it means to have a seat at the table.
“It's important to recognize that there's been a lot of progress in achieving or moving toward a kind of gender parity in the field of neuroscience. But there's some way to go yet, and I feel it's important to stress that there's no single solution,” says SfN President Diane Lipscombe.
“What I would stress is the importance of having all of us, as members of a society, to be responsible and feel responsible and to take action.”
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.
