The Princeton Neuroscience Institute is committed to fostering a welcoming and inclusive environment for researchers from all backgrounds. Backgrounds include but are not limited to political views, religion, national or ethnic origin, race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, age, marital status, veteran status, disability, research discipline, history of conviction or incarceration, socioeconomic status, and educational history. We strive to create an environment that makes interactions and collaborations enjoyable and fulfilling while also eliminating discrimination, harassment, exploitation, and intimidation. We affirm that promoting diversity is an active process that requires engagement.
We seek to promote awareness of perspectives that may have been previously inaccessible (or less prominent) to groups traditionally represented in scientific research environments. We affirm that diversification requires cultural, experiential, and ideological representation as well as increasing the number of researchers and students from underrepresented groups. We aim to foster an environment where various perspectives are valued because they serve to advance the Institute’s academic excellence and intellectual capacity, and will contribute to a more productive and respectful professional environment.
