Gender Neutrality Pledge

As high-lighted in several recent high-profile publications, predominately unconscious gender bias in science remains a real problem that acts as a barrier to equal opportunity and hinders research.
To actively combat these biases, the principal investigators of the ZNZ have taken it upon themselves to sign a pledge promising to adhere to best practices in gender neutrality within their laboratories. The aim is to create a neuroscience community that is free of gender bias. This initiative, championed by the ZNZ Gender Equality Committee, aligns with UZH President Michael Hengartner's commitment to “making UZH a great place to study and work for people from all walks of life”. The signatories receive the logo test1on their profile in the group listings http://www.neuroscience.uzh.ch/en/research.html.
