Picture a Scientist Documentary
The Winter Genetics class is hosting a gathering to watch and discuss the documentary, "Picture a Scientist” TONIGHT (Monday, 1/30) from 8-10 in Anderson 121. You’re welcome to join us and bring a friend—could be a nice way to warm up after Bio Ice Skating. Here’s a synopsis of the film, from picturescientist.com:
"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."
