Flux Diversity Working Group
The Flux Diversity Working Group (DWG) provides a forum for our members to engage with issues of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion within the field of developmental cognitive neuroscience. First, we seek to provide affinity spaces and other supports for our members who identify with one or more traditionally marginalized groups in neuroscience. Second, we work to enhance the capacity of all Flux members to acknowledge, interrogate, and redress the historical and ongoing systemically oppressive forces that have limited the quality, accuracy, and generalizability of our research. Through annual conference sessions, affinity groups, and other organized public offerings, the Flux DWG is committed to maximizing diversity and inclusivity to transform our field for greatest societal impact.

Flux Affinity Groups
Affinity groups are formed around a shared identity or common goal to build community among members of non-dominant groups and to foster inclusion and awareness in the broader community. Flux Society currently has four affinity groups that are led and maintained by current members. All current members are free to join! Affinity Groups regularly meet online and plan to meet during the 2022 Flux Congress.
