The Flora Stone Mather Center for Women will host a screening of Picture a Scientist Friday, Feb. 19, at noon via Zoom.
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, viewers 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.
After the screening, there will be an option for discussion for those that are interested.
