Using Neuroscience to Foster a Sense of Belonging in STEM with Kaela Singleton
The complexity, adaptability and evolutionary capacity of cells, tissues, organs and organisms require equity, diversity, and inclusion in their very genetic and environmental make up. We accept and embrace these principles in biology, but they aren't always embraced in our scientific communities. As scientists, how can we use these principles to create a culture of belonging that leads to more fulfilling careers and better science?

In this Live Chat, we will discuss:
* Principles of neuroscience that support EDI.
* The importance of accountability and representation in STEM.
* How to build and grow safe, supportive communities in science.

Stay after the 1 hour Live Chat for 30 minutes of networking in breakout rooms!
