Join the National Girls Collaborative Project for a panel discussion with Picture a Scientist’s film makers, Sharon Shattuck and Ian Cheney, both award winning documentarians, and one of the featured scientists from the film, Dr. Raychelle Burks. Throughout the discussion we will learn more about the origins of the film, the important struggles and strides of women in STEM, and connections between film making and STEM.
All registrants will receive a secure link for 72-hour access to view the film prior to the webinar. Due to the topics covered, the film is most suitable for ages 14 and above.
Registration for this webinar will close on Wednesday, October 7 and all registrants will receive access to the film by Saturday, October 10.
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.
