Women in Neuroscience Committee
The objectives of the Women in Neuroscience Committee are the organisation and promotion of actions to close the gap between the number of male and female researchers in Neuroscience. This difference is more accentuated in the latter stages of scientific careers. To achieve these objectives, different initiatives are to be launched in order to: i) raise awareness in the neuroscientific community of the situation of women in Neuroscience, providing statistics and objective data; ii) to raise the profile of women SENC members; and iii) to channel the ideas and demands of all members in order to implement solutions.
To interview women SENC members, in order to raise their profile so that they can be role models for new generations of young women scientists.
To publish the percentages of participation of men and women as speakers at the SENC Biennial Conferences and in the activities organised or funded by the Society, and to monitor the levels reached in the successive editions of those events.
To offer the support of the Society to those members who wish to organise activities related to the objectives of the Women in Neuroscience Committee
