The FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence is proud to endorse the ALBA Declaration on Equity and Inclusion
, which aims to ensure that science welcomes and benefits from the contributions of people of all backgrounds. The Declaration acts as a broad statement of principles and suggests concrete, evidence-based actions for promoting equity and inclusion across science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields.
The Declaration was established by the ALBA network, a worldwide network aimed at promoting equity and diversity in brain sciences. This initiative was spearheaded in part by Dr. Megan Carey, the previous Chair of the FENS-Kavli Network of Excellence, and the Declaration was drafted with input from FKNE Scholars along with many other partners of the ALBA network. Over 160 institutions have already signed the Declaration and FKNE is proud to be among the first signatories.
