In collaboration with EarthLab & the UW College of the Environment, Future Rivers is pleased to present our Fall 2022 Series screening of the film “Picture A Scientist.”

This documentary 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.

Attendees are welcome to either join us for both the in-person film screening and panel on November 3, 2022 from 12-3pm (choose “In-Person” option upon registering) or register for the hour-long panel from 2-3pm (choose “Mixed-Mode Attendance” option upon registering).
