There is a clear lack of equality when it comes to scientific employment between men and women. This problem manifests itself at the University level, and includes the Redwood Center itself. In the summer of 2014, we held a group meeting to begin looking at ways in which we could improve the situation. There were many great ideas and thoughtfully written articles from the Internet put forth.

This page is established in an attempt to keep an electronic record of progress and thoughts towards gender equality in the field of Neuroscience as a whole.
