Womxn in Neuroscience @ UO
Diverse perspectives are fundamental to the success of science, yet equity has not been achieved. The mission of our organization is to enrich science by providing support to womxn* in neuroscience. We will redefine the scientific community to be one in which womxn are empowered to pursue genuine self-expression, scientific endeavors, and career advancement at all levels. This will broadly be achieved by fostering self-education, institutional reform, and promoting advocacy for all in neuroscience.
*Womxn is used as an inclusive term that encompasses all people who are cis-female, trans-female, non-binary, genderqueer, or female-identifying.
Our group is focused on womxn and gender issues in neuroscience, but we welcome anyone to participate in supporting gender equity in science.
