What our Members Say

Being a woman of color pursuing a Ph.D. in neuroscience was often an arduous and growth-provoking experience. The Black Doctoral Network Association (BDN) helped to provide a forum for networking and community building by which I was able to connect with peers of similar research endeavors. This fostered my own personal growth as well as facilitated sharing of similar experiences, advice on career advancement, and critical review of my thesis manuscript.
