Resources to Increase Women in Neuroscience: Addressing Implicit Bias - a FENS-CHET hosted event 2017-09-21 - 13:00-14:30
Venue: Section Room 119
Are you working to increase awareness of the issues facing women in academia? Are you struggling with your own career and you need to have specific data without having to spend time searching and revising the literature?

The Society for Neuroscience (SfN) has created a new suite of tools called the Increasing Women in Neuroscience toolkits. The toolkits contain 30-minute turn-key PowerPoint presentations and related resources that focus on specific gender issues that impede talent retention, such as recruitment, hiring, promotion, and evaluation. During this session, former chair of SfN’s Women in Neuroscience Subcommittee, Mara Dierssen, PhD, will present the Increasing Women in Neuroscience toolkit on implicit bias, and will provide guidance on how you can adapt SfN’s Increasing Women in Neuroscience toolkits to your audience.

The event will end with an informal lunch and networking among attendees. No additional registration is required.
