Women in Neuroscience is building a diverse community of female students to pursue leadership careers and create representative diversity in the fields of neuroscience and neurology.
Through paid summer internships, educational opportunities, and one-on-one mentoring, WiN ensures its young women “WiNterns” build the confidence and leadership skills necessary to realize their career goals.
Compelling data shows that diverse groups, including women and people of color, generate more creative ideas and improved scientific outcomes than homogeneous groups.Machlovi, S., Pero, A., Ng, S., Zhong, M., & Cai, D.

A Life-changing Experience
I had the privilege of being one of the first WiN interns. I realized that I wasn’t in the lab because they wanted an expert to revolutionize the research being done. I was in the lab because they wanted someone who could learn—and someone who wanted to learn—and they saw that in me.
