MBP Event

Picture a Scientist film posterDue to popular demand, the Department is pleased to host a virtual screening of Picture a Scientist for anyone in MBP who wishes to watch the award-winning scientific documentary.

About the film: ‘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.

MBP will have access to screen the film at any time during a specified 72h window which will begin on Friday June 11th and end on Wednesday, June 16th.

If you are interested in viewing the film during the 72h window, please email Charlie.Berger@utoronto.ca and the registration link will be sent to you. Please RSVP by no later than Thursday, June 10th
