“Picture a Scientist” Screening for International Women’s Day – Wednesday 08 March, 2pm

8 March 2023 14:00 until 15:30

University of Sussex Campus – Chichester 1 Lecture Theatre

The Schools of Engineering and Informatics and Life Sciences at the University of Sussex are co-hosting a screening of the film Picture a Scientist in recognition of International Women’s Day. 

Picture a Scientist, by filmmakers Ian Cheney and Sharon Shattuck, is a feature-length documentary that uses a combination of statistics and personal experiences to examine the role of gender in science, especially why women remain a minority. It also explores how scientific disciplines can be made more diverse, equitable and open to all. 

The screening, organised by the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion teams in the Schools of Engineering and Informatics and Life Sciences will take place at 2 pm on Wednesday 8 March in the Chichester 1 Lecture Theatre, and is open to all staff and students.
