The following is an introduction to the goals of ISWCN.


Thank you for your interest in the International Society for Women 
in Cognitive Neuroscience.  ISWCN is an information network with 
the specific goal of  enhancing opportunities for women.  The 
primary goal of  ISWCN is to provide a positive vehicle for 
overcoming some of  the obstacles women face in forming 
successful careers in  cognitive neuroscience.  The objective of 
ISWCN is to facilitate  the transmission of information about 
opportunities and to  facilitate communication among colleagues.  
Our most  important functions are our newsletter, e-mail network,  
directory of members, and dissertation travel award.  ISWCN  
membership includes researchers at all levels in their careers  who 
are interested in advancing opportunities for women in  this field.  

While ISWCN is dedicated to helping women develop their  
careers, this dedication does not entail excluding men from  
ISWCN.  We believe that ensuring that women have the same  
opportunities that men have is a goal and a responsiblity that  men 
share with women.  We remain dedicated to finding  positive and 
inclusive solutions.

You may join ISWCN by sending membership dues ($10 regular, $5 
student; check payable to ISWCN) to:
