Hill-Lopes Scholars Program Special Event

Event Title:     Picture a Scientist Film Screening & Panel Discussion

Picture a Scientist is a feature-length documentary film that chronicles the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, viewers also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

After the film, there will be a talk-back panel featuring faculty and staff members from the Fisher College of Science & Mathematics, College of Liberal Arts and The Office of Inclusion and Institutional Equity. View the trailer to Picture a Scientist here.

This event is hosted by the Hill-Lopes Scholars Program.
