Be the First to Know When Registration Opens for SfN’s Next Virtual Conference
We are excited to share SfN’s upcoming virtual conference on Mitigating Implicit Bias will be held on January 23-24, 2019.
We all have learned stereotypes that unconsciously influence how we see ourselves and others. Like perceptual illusions, some biases persist even once we are aware of them. Implicit bias impacts diverse scientific communities, ultimately limiting the potential of neuroscientists and inhibiting discovery.
In this virtual conference, you will learn practical strategies for recognizing and overcoming implicit bias and increasing diversity in your labs and institutions, as well as the neuroscience field at large.
Specific topics that will be covered by experts include:
- Implicit bias in academia: why it’s there and what we can do about it
- Social dynamics
- Mentoring in light of implicit biases
- Recruitment, selection, and evaluation
- Diversifying the pipeline
Access to this virtual conference is included as a benefit of your SfN membership. Join SfN or renew your membership to ensure complimentary registration to this event. Not a neuroscientist? Nonmembers will be able to register for the virtual conference at a registration rate of $150.
You will have a unique opportunity to discuss these important issues with experts and colleagues. Please sign up here to be the first to find out when registration opens and get more details about speakers and the agenda.
