I joined ALBA because :
Diversity is vital for successful and productive science. We must work towards making the scientific community at all levels is representative of our community as a whole - which currently it is not. I strongly support the aims of the Alba network to raise awareness of this issue and to think about new ways to counter the biases that currently exist.
