As part of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Women's History Month and International Women's Day, we will organize this panel discussion for all TU Delft staff and students. People outside TU Delft are also welcome to the discussion.
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 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, 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.

We invite those who watch the film to keep asking questions, to encourage more discussion, and to take actions within your own communities to advance more conversations about (gender) equity in science in institutions, corporations, societies, and other groups worldwide.
