Picture a Scientist Film & Discussion

Graduate Medical Education (SOM), School of Medicine Dean’s Standing Committee for Women in Medicine and Science, Office of Faculty Affairs (SOM), Research and Graduated Education (SOM), Academic, Rural and Regional Affairs (SOM), Office of Healthcare Equity (SOM) and the Health Sciences Library are pleased to announce the screening of the documentary Picture a Scientist followed by a panel discussion about women in the sciences and the challenges and the issues they face. We hope you can join us!  Please share this free event with your networks.

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.

Watch: The film will be available for viewing anytime April 2 to April 4. 

Register:  A unique streaming code will be emailed to attendees.

Discuss: Please join us on Wed. April 7th from 6:00 pm – 7:00 p.m. PST/ 7:00 pm – 8:00 p.m. MST
