Picture a Scientist Special Screening
The Gender Equity in Chemical Sciences (GEICS), Promoting Inclusion in Physics and Astronomy (PIPA) and McMaster Women in Math (MWM) groups are hosting a screening of the documentary “Picture a Scientist” for International Women’s Day.
"Picture a Scientist" is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist 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.

Although the discussion session will be restricted to students, anyone is welcome to register for the screening and view the documentary!
