SOU’s STEM Division is hosting a complimentary virtual screening of the documentary, PICTURE A SCIENTIST. You will be able to view the film anytime Tuesday, January 19, through Thursday, January 21. Following the screening, SOU X-Factor, a group that supports the advancement of underrepresented faculty at SOU, will lead a virtual live panel discussion on Friday, January 22, 3:30-5:00 PM.
PICTURE A SCIENTIST, an official selection of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival, is a feature-length documentary chronicling 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. Here is a link to the Trailer https://www.pictureascientist.com/media and more information about the film.
