Programs & Initiatives

Project #BoostINCC

  • Project #BoostINCC – it is well documented that women and underrepresented individuals undersell their accomplishments and are less inclined to self-promotion, though visibility is an essential component of academic advancement and promotion. Project #BoostINCC is a way to operationalize a way to amplify the achievements of INCC members.

    • Email us at so we can amplify your accomplishments (e.g., promotion, change in job, new leadership positions, paper/book publications, awards, scholarships, new grants, significant life events, etc.). Photos are encouraged with social media request submissions!

    • Or alternatively, use the #BoostINCC and we will amplify on Twitter!

INCC Mentorship Program

    INCC Speaker’s Bureau

    • Historically, there have been significant disparities in representation of speaking invitations for women, allied health professionals, and people of color. Ultimately they have fewer speaker opportunities which has implications in terms of academic promotions and future opportunities.

      INCC Annual Meeting Events

      • INCC Family Night – has been typically held the night before the opening ceremony.

        • Dinner before the meeting is a relaxing way to meet other families with kids, let the kids get comfortable with each other, and maybe even plan another time to eat or play with new (or old!) friends.

        • 2019 was the inaugural event held at The Old Spaghetti Factory (see photos)

        • 2020 was a virtual pajama party where we watched two short films and the children had an opportunity to show off their pajamas and interact.

          • Registration Form

          • Also, the 2020 Annual Meeting Website featured WINCC-curated online resources to entertain children of all ages during the virtual meeting

        • 2021 Details to Come information to come!

      Childcare for the NCS Annual Meeting

      • In 2019, the NCS Board of Directors and Executive Committee approved the WINCC section proposal to provide on-site, drop-off childcare for conference attendees. The WINCC section was able to demonstrate the need for childcare at the Annual Meeting after surveying the entire NCS membership. NCS was the first neurology-based annual conferences to provide on-site childcare to conference attendees.
