I joined ALBA because :
Fixing the leaky pipeline in STEM will be one of the main challenges of my generation of researchers. To contribute to this effort, I'm trying to make a difference in my own lab, and also as a member of the gender equality committee of the Zurich Neuroscience Center. I hope that joining Alba will help to flag and counteract bias in all its forms in the wider neuroscience community.

I joined ALBA because :
Because the higher I go in my career, the more troubles I face to get funding and opportunities for being a single woman in their 30s (They may think that I will have "other" priorities that come with age, which doesn't happen when you are a man).

I joined ALBA because :
In a time of depression during my PhD (current), I discovered science twitter and wonderfull people advocating for the same ideas: gender equality, better mental health and diversity in science. I felt empowered by following these êople and their work. Since then, I want to do my part and work toward a better science for everyone.
