Picture a Scientist

Tēnā koutou,

The Association for Women in the Sciences, GeMs in STEM, and Department of Geology DiversiTEA are hosting a free in-person film screening of the critically acclaimed film Picture a Scientist.

Picture a Scientist is a powerful 90-minute documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. Geologist Jane Willenbring, biologist Nancy Hopkins and chemist Raychelle Burks lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.

We invite you to join us for the in-person screening on Friday 25 September at 5.30pm, in the Dental Blue Lecture Theatre (ground floor of the Dental School Building – entrance on Frederick Street). After the film we will hold a short panel discussion/debrief.

If you can’t make it to the in-person screening, you can register to receive a link to the virtual screening at:
