The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute believes diversity, inclusion, equity and belonging are essential to the advancement of science and to the development of a vibrant intellectual community. Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color (BIPOC) have been and continue to be under-represented in Science, Technology, Engineering and Medicine (STEM) fields. Wu Tsai Neuro is committed to meaningful and long-lasting anti-racist actions and supporting neuroscientists of all races, genders, sexualities, abilities, immigration statuses or socioeconomic backgrounds.

The Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute Committee on Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, Equity and Justice will listen to input and feedback from our broad community, evaluate institute programs and policies, develop and prioritize concrete actions on timelines ranging from short-term to long-term, and report their findings and recommendations to the Executive Committee. Members include representatives from all levels of affiliation within our community: 4 faculty, 2 postdocs, 2 graduate students, 1 undergraduate student and 1 staff member. The committee meets biweekly, and will present their short-term recommendations provided to the Executive Committee by November 1, 2020, and long-term recommendations by March 1, 2021.
We welcome anonymous information, experiences and suggestions to improve diversity, inclusion, belonging, equity and justice at Wu Tsai Neurosciences Institute. We are listening!
