Picture a Scientist
March is Women’s History Month! To celebrate, we will be hosting a free virtual screening of Picture a Scientist.
The official synopsis: “PICTURE A SCIENTIST chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, from cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we encounter scientific luminaries – including social scientists, neuroscientists, and psychologists – who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all. “
The film will be accessible for viewing from 12pm on Friday March 26th through 12pm on Monday March 29th.
