Screening of "Picture a Scientist"


An important new film about gender inequality across the sciences

Picture a Scientist started from exploring reports in the late 1990s that exposed significant gender inequity across the sciences. As we dug into the data and spoke with dozens of scientists, we realized the vast extent of the challenges facing women and minority scientists. Despite groundbreaking efforts by the courageous scientists featured in the film and elsewhere, systemic gender bias and racism persist.Our goal in making the film was to raise visibility around these critical issues of diversity, equity, and inclusion in science and invite viewers into a deeper conversation about how to make science more inclusive. Thus, the film is just the start. While everyone has a role to play in changing the culture of science, this discussion guide is largely aimed toward scientists, to advance more conversations about equity in science in institutions, corporations, societies, and other groups worldwide.
