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. Research conducted in the absence of diversity and inclusion of all people and their ideas slows the pace of science and our ability to treat diseases and improve lives. In order to pursue the above goals, the institute formed the committee on Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, Equity and Justice (DIBEJ).
Below, please explore our guide to community, funding, wellness resources, social justice and diversity/equity/inclusion educational materials, and information about our community advocate program.
If you are experiencing any type of situation that impacts your work or wellbeing, or makes you feel unsafe or unwelcome (including discrimination, micro/macro-aggressions or harassment), Wu Tsai Neuro’s community advocate, Melissa Landeros, can help. Melissa can meet with you one-on-one or assist you over email to consider your options for resolution and navigate the support resources Stanford offers.
