Picture A Scientist


CFE is partnering with the Provost’s office, the VPRP, the VP for DEI, the Graduate College, the Women’s and Gender Studies Department, and the Gender and Equality Center to provide a free screening of Picture a Scientist, a documentary that focuses on issues at the intersection of gender, race, and academic science careers through the compelling stories of three scientists who fought for (or are fighting for) greater access and equity in science. Register here.

We will send all registered participants a link to the streaming site the week prior to the event. Participants are also encouraged to participate in one or more discussion forums which will be held Oct. 26th-Oct 29th.
