Mission Statement: brainWAVES is building an equitable professional experience in the Department of Psychology and the Princeton Neuroscience Institute by providing a platform and safe community to discuss the occupational challenges faced by womxn*, educating about strategies to eliminate gender-based disadvantages, and ensuring that everyone has knowledge of, and access to, resources for responding to misconduct.
* womxn: used, especially in intersectional feminism, to be explicitly inclusive of trans and nonbinary women and women of color.
“Subtle” discrimination, as opposed to overt discrimination, includes any form of discrimination that is more implicit, ambiguous, or ambivalent.
