Virtual Screening of PICTURE A SCIENTIST

1 October 2020 18:00 - 4 October 2020 18:00, United Kingdom

Picture a Scientist is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists.  A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science.  From cramped laboratories to spectacular field sites, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable and open to all.

The screening dates were chosen so as to be within National Inclusion Week.

Please register by 1600 on Tuesday 29th September, by emailing your name and email address to or, quoting "UoLeeds Virtual Screening".  Registered attenders will receive a link and a password and will be able to view the film at any time during the 72-hour screening window.   This has been funded by The Heising-Simons Foundation, the RSC Central Yorkshire Local Section and the Women@Leeds Network.
