Advancing Progress Against Harassment in Economic Geology
Hosted by: SEG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
Virtual Film Screening
April 2-4, 2023
Interactive Panel Discussion
April 6, 11:00am - 12:00pm MDT (UTC-6)
SEG invites you to participate in a free screening of Picture A Scientist, a ground-breaking documentary film that chronicles the rise of scientific researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists and providing new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
Conversations on confronting harassment and gender bias in the minerals industry have become an increasingly important aspect of SEG events and initiatives. Picture a Scientist is a documentary that highlights these important issues across the sciences with perspectives and examples from Dr. Jane Willenbring (geomorphologist), Dr. Raychelle Burks (analytical chemist), and Dr. Nancy Hopkins (molecular biologist).
A virtual showing of this film, followed by a panel discussion, was hosted in March 2021 by the SEG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee, highlighting that harassment and bias likewise affects economic geology across both academia and industry. Building on discussions invigorated by this past panel, the SEG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee is once again offering Picture a Scientist to membership during a virtual film showing in April 2023. Following the film, a panel discussion moderated by Libby Sharman and featuring professionals from across the minerals industry will address harassment, gender bias, and discrimination within the economic geology community.
