MIDDLETOWN, CT - Choice is thrilled to produce the upcoming live online panel webinar event, When You Picture a Scientist, Who Do You See? sponsored by ProQuest, Scientific American, ro*co films, and FILM PLATFORM.
 
During this live event, to be broadcast on March 24 at 3pm ET, Nobel Prize-winning Dr. Jennifer Doudna, co-inventor of CRISPR technology, and other world-renowned scientists will answer audience-submitted questions following a candid conversation on advancing diversity and inclusion in STEM. 

Those interested in attending the online panel discussion about diversity and inclusion in STEM can register for this free webinar at https://www.choice360.org/webinars/when-you-picture-a-scientist-who-do-you-see/.

Inspired by the award-winning documentary Picture a Scientist, the discussion will focus on:

  • the experience of each panelist as leaders in their field,
  • the journey and obstacles each overcame to get here, and
  • what they identify as positive solutions that will allow for continued equity and inclusion within the scientific community and beyond.

The live event will be moderated by Editor-in-Chief for Scientific American, Dr. Laura Helmuth. This esteemed panel will also discuss the valuable role that documentary films play, films like Picture a Scientist and Human Nature, in sparking important conversations in education.
