The IINSPIRE LSAMP Alumni Committee (ILAC) welcomes all to a private screening of the renowned 2020 documentary “Picture a Scientist.” The documentary begins promptly at 6:00 pm. The waiting room will open at 5:45 pm with announcements. The screening will be followed by small group discussions facilitated by the ILAC Leadership Team.
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.
