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 :
As a neuroscientist and clinical psychologist, I now work to promote well-being in academia. I work one-on-one with post-grads, postdocs, early career researchers and faculty to help reduce burnout, overwhelm, anxiety and fear. My goal is to foster a dialogue regarding the well-being and performance of our academic community (I have a particular fond spot for neuroscientists) and I hope to widen the scope of that discussion with ALBA.

I joined ALBA because :
I learned about this through ECNP 2019 and think its mission is terrific and I would love to be involved and help in any way that I can. It also looks that there is an underrepresentation of people from the United States, hence I hope to also contribute to this becoming a global network.
