The richness that can be drawn from the diversity of sexes, genders, cultures and opinions is essential to the diversity of ideas and scientific progress. In this context, gender inequality emerges from the perpetuation of implicit biases and gender stereotypes that shape how we behave, our ability to recognise unequal treatment and the willingness of disadvantaged individuals to speak up.
The situation at Bordeaux Neurocampus is no different. We have created a Neurocampus Parity Committee (NPC) to promote equality and combat insidious gender biases.

Gender equity in our networks
- RESET (University of Bordeaux)
A consortium of European universities, the Rethinking Equality and Scientific Excellence (RESET) project, aims to place gender equality and diversity at the heart of science and university policy-making.
The CNRS Mission for the Advancement of Women celebrated its 20th anniversary on January 11, 2022. While parity has progressed over this period, the new action plan for equality 2021-2023 is a new stage in this commitment and intends to go further.
To fight professional inequalities, Inserm has appointed gender equality coordinators within the regional delegations. The objective of this dynamic and committed network is to relay campaigns; to propose actions; to lead reflection; to monitor the progress of the structure with regard to parity.
- ALBA network
ALBA represents a global diverse network of individual neuroscientists who are involved in research, education, communication and advocacy, and are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion.
