PICTURE A SCIENTIST - Virtual Film Screening and Discussion

Jun 14
14. Juni 2021 16:00 Uhr bis 18:30 Uhr

Why do we primarily think of a man when we imagine „a scientist“? In the documentary PICTURE A SCIENTIST, a biologist, a chemist and a geologist 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, we encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
The Research Training Groups GRK 2423 FRASCAL and IGK 2495 „Energy Conversion Systems“ invite interested parties to watch the film „Picture a Scientist“ (English with German subtitles) together and to discuss it afterwards, digitally.
