WISEST/WiSER - "Picture a Scientist" Virtual Screening

Event Description: 

WISEST (Women in Scholarship, Engineering, Science and Technology) and our network WiSER (Women in Science, Engineering and Research) are teaming up to bring you a virtual screening of "Picture a Scientist".

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 Willen bring 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.
