‘Picture a Scientist’ Film Screening

October 24 @ 12:00 pm - October 26 @ 12:00 pm

FREE

Join campus for the latest fall learning and skills development opportunity with an on-demand screening of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival Official Selection, “Picture a Scientist.”

Picture a Scientist started from exploring reports in the late 1990s that exposed significant gender inequity across the sciences. As we [directors] 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, 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.

Advanced registration required. Access information will be emailed 48 hours prior to film screening window. Registration closes October 23 at 5:00 PM, MDT.
