Science will only grow if we do it altogether. More people, more views, more ideas: diversity is a key component to achieve this. Unfortunately, the world of today is still unfair with minority groups and neuroscience does not escape from this reality. Promoting diversity requires direct actions and engagement, and that is why I would like to join this ambitious and necessary initiative.
