National screening and panel

Join the Australian Academy of Science for a screening of ‘Picture a Scientist’ followed by a panel discussion livestreamed from the University of Sydney.

‘Picture a Scientist’ is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences – overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination and years of subtle slights – to revolutionise the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable and open to all.
