Our commitment to Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Where we are

The Academy of Neuroscience for Architecture (ANFA) is committed to a culture of equity, and has nearly 400 members from many countries and continents. We are developing our equity policies and practices, and take this work very seriously. To gain new insight and understanding, we will engage in listening followed by thoughtful and respectful dialogue. We are committed to learning and action in our ongoing journey to develop our equity, diversity, and inclusion policies and practices. Updates will be made available About Us > Mission.
