Ciné-ONU screening of ‘Picture A Scientist’

When: Tuesday 8 March, 19:00 | Where: Cinéma Galeries, Brussels

To mark International Women’s Day 2022, the United Nations presents ‘Picture A Scientist’

PICTURE A SCIENTIST 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.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with:

  • Rania Charkaoui, Biomedical Engineer and co-founder of WomenInTech
  • A representative of the European Commission
  • Dagmar Schumacher, Director of the UN Women Brussels Office
  • Moderated by Caroline Petit, Deputy Director of UNRIC Brussels
