The ALBA Network
Founded in 2018 by a group of leading scientists, the ALBA Network aims to foster equity and diversity in brain sciences.
Despite growing interest in diversity-related issues, inequities exist and persist: talented scientists are excluded from opportunities in brain research due to their sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, socioeconomic status, ethnicity, race, nationality, religion- or culture, that bear no relationship to their potential to succeed.
ALBA believes that diversity is a fundamental component of excellence, and that access to education, training, resources, mentoring and work should be based on an individual’s potential.
The goals of the network are to
- Share best practices to counteract bias
- Recognise outstanding contributions to science and diversity
- Provide networking and mentoring opportunities
- Support career development of members of underrepresented groups.
