About this Event

This was a panel discussion and the screening of documentary Picture a Scientist which challenges the traditional view of science being a male dominated field and tells the story of several women who are changing the way we view scientists. Our panel will explore new perspectives on how to make science more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
