"Picture a Scientist": Virtual film screening and discussion

Jan 19, 2021, 8:00 until Jan 21, 2021, 17:00, Online

Between January 19 and 21, 2021, Better Science and the Office for Gender Equality at the University of Bern host a screening of “Picture a Scientist.” MARVEL encourages you to discover this inspiring film.

Featuring geologist Jane Willenbring, chemist Raychelle Burks, and biologist Nancy Hopkins, the film brings diversity in science into sharp view at a critical time. For too long, women and other minorities in science have been left out or driven out, stymied by a system of harassment, discrimination, and general bias. The trailer is available here.

A discussion around the film with researchers at the University of Bern will take place on January 21, 17:00. Register for a link to the film and the discussion at info@betterscience.ch.
