From EEG caps, to ‘racist algorithms’ to mental health & neurological disorder disparities, neuroscience has a big role to play in ensuring an equitable society. We as neuroscientists must not only be aware but address anti-Black racism head on. For us the status quo yields exclusion, worsened outcomes & early fatality. We at Black In Neuro address this by increasing the visibility, retention and opportunities of Black people within the neurosciences globally. We need your help, it is time to readjust the lens.
“In this talk we will address the importance of inclusive design and invention, looking at the real world consequences for Black people when this isn’t taken into account. We must take inclusion seriously, join us in this fight.”
