BELONG is focused on creating an inclusive and welcoming environment for individuals who specifically identify as Black, Indigenous, Latinx, and/or People of Color (BIPOC) within our neuroscience community.

Please contact to RSVP. A zoom link will follow.

The goals of BELONG are to:

  • foster community and provide a safe space to share concerns and science
  • inquire about career advancement and opportunities within the field of neuroscience
  • unravel the hidden requirements of academia via our lunch series: “Unwritten Rules of Science: BIPOC Edition”
  • provide mentorship and networking opportunities focused on the needs of early career BIPOC neuroscientists

BELONG lunches are held twice a month, generally on Tuesdays at 12:00pm.

We'd like to make this a safe, supportive, and engaging community that can serve as a microclimate for our scientific lives; this includes developing friendships and collaborations, the opportunity for informal and community-based mentorship, learning about new ideas, technical skills, and people--whatever we need it to be. As much as anything, we’d like this to be a place where joy and belonging come easy.
