Picture a Scientist is a groundbreaking documentary film that chronicles the rise of scientific researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists and provides unique perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all. Featuring geologist Jane Willenbring, chemist Raychelle Burks, and biologist Nancy Hopkins and key social scientists working to understand and reduce gender bias in the sciences, Picture a Scientist brings diversity issues into sharp focus.
The film transcends the academic environment, raising important issues for men and women working together, highlighting the role of bystanders as well as institutional change. While dealing head-on with the issues of harassment, implicit bias, and institutional discrimination, the film also provides insight into pathways to new relationships and ways of working together.
