Picture a Scientist Online Film Screening and Panel Discussion at USU

Utah State University is among a number of institutions hosting virtual screenings of the 2020 independent documentary film, Picture a Scientist. Scheduled to premiere at the postponed 2020 Tribeca Film Festival, Picture a Scientist offers a sobering portrait of the struggles women face in science. The film challenges audiences of all backgrounds and genders to question their own implicit biases and commit to change.

In conjunction with the screening, USU hosts an online panel discussion Monday, March 8 (International Women’s Day) at noon on Zoom, with the film’s director and producer Sharon Shattuck, along with USU faculty members Dr. Sojung Lim, Dr. Claudia Radel and Dr. Katherine Vela. See below for additional information.
