Picture a Scientist
Screening and online panel discussion
As a campaign to promote Equality and Diversity gains momentum in several ENS departments, its supporters are organizing an online screening in April of the ground-breaking film ‘Picture a Scientist.’ Open to all students and faculty, it will be followed by a panel discussion with guests including Marc Mézard, Director of ENS-PSL.
‘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.
