Mission Statement

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.
