Bias in STEM: Documentary Viewing and Panel Discussion – Feb 10
Posted by Villanova University on January 11, 2022
You are invited to a showing of the documentary, Picture a Scientist, followed with a brief panel of STEM faculty, alumni, and students on more inclusive strategies for women of all races and ethnicities in science. In honor of International Day of Women and Girls in Science, it is hoped that this event will bring together persons of all genders from both within and outside of Villanova University, to ultimately effect greater innovation and discovery across the sciences.
Date and Time: Thursday, February 10, 2022, 5:00 PM – 7:00 PM
Location: Cinema Lobby, Connelly Center, Villanova, PA 19085

From cramped laboratories to spectacular field stations, the film follows the stories of both White and BIPOC women and their male counterparts who are striving to make science more equitable and accessible to all.
