Welcome to the ALBA Disability & Accessibility Working Group's video project aimed at fostering inclusivity and accessibility within the neuroscience research community and academic workspaces. The tips shared here want to help ensure that neuroscientists with disabilities have the opportunity to thrive in their academic pursuits.
Leading up to ALBA Week (23-27 October - SAVE THE DATE), we will be releasing one video each week. These videos are featuring members of our Disability & Accessibility Working Group. They will share invaluable tips, strategies, and best practices to help researchers, funders, organisations and institutions make tangible improvements in the academic workspace.
Donna Rose Addis
Hello, I'm Donna Rose Addis, a neuroscientist with a disability, hailing from the Rotman Research Institute in Toronto, Canada. As researchers, one challenge we frequently encounter at conferences is the need for early arrivals to recover from the effects of travel and sometimes the necessity for more expensive accommodations that cater to our specific needs.
In this video, I'll be sharing some valuable tips to help us build a neuroscience research community that's inclusive and supportive for scientists with disabilities.
Hi. I’m Isabel Castanho. I am a neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School, in Boston, United States, and I have Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).
In this video, I'll be sharing some challenges faced by scientists with anxiety disorders and some tips on how to build a neuroscience research community that's inclusive and supportive for persons with disabilities.
