The documentary “Picture a scientist” will be screened Monday Sep. 27, 2021 at 12:00pm in the Aud. C, GEN.

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.”

The CIG encourages everyone to attend the screening organised on Monday Sep. 27, 2021 and to take part to discussions following this event.
Dates will be communicated soon.

For pandemic reasons, please register here to participate: link
The room is limited to x persons.
Please bring your mobile with you as your covid passes will be checked at the doors of the auditorium.
