Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the SACNAS Chapter OSU are hosting a virtual screening of the documentary film, Picture a Scientist (https://www.pictureascientist.com/) from January 30 to February 1. The film follows three scientists confronting gender and racial biases in STEM fields. Picture a Scientist was an official selection of the 2020 Tribeca Film Festival and provides perspectives on making science more diverse, equitable, and open to all. 

A panel discussion will also take place on Monday, February 1st at 4 p.m. EST and will include Dr. Jane Willenbring, one of the scientists featured in the film, along with Ohio State scientists, Dr. Terry Wilson, Dr. Marcela Hernandez, and Dr. Laura Lopez.
