CRN Statement Condemning Racism, Discrimination, and Violence

The killing of George Floyd and many others is a sickening reflection of systemic racism, violence, and discriminatory practices against Black men, women, and children, which is unacceptable. The Centre for Research in Neuroscience (CRN) condemns all forms of racism, discrimination, and violence, and is committed to providing a safe, inclusive research environment where respect for all individuals is paramount. We at the CRN are committed to confronting these issues and we are working harder to improve education for all Centre faculty, staff, and trainees on racism, discrimination, and violence, and develop stronger training and outreach programs to achieve an equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment. For example, we are collaborating with the Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience (BRaIN) Program to create a committee focused on Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity (EDI). The mission of this committee will be to gather input from faculty, staff, and trainees on how the CRN and BRaIN Program can develop anti-racism and anti-discrimination policies that promote equity within our research environment and promote education and EDI training for all of our researchers.
