During this live event, Nobel Prize-winning Dr. Jennifer Doudna (featured in the film Human Nature) and other world-renowned scientists welcome your questions following a candid conversation on advancing diversity and inclusion in STEM.

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

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

The discussion will be moderated by Editor in Chief for Scientific American, Laura Helmuth. Only the ninth Editor in Chief in the magazine’s 175-year history, Laura’s leadership and commitment to science journalism and storytelling makes her the ideal person to drive the conversation.

We’ll also be discussing the valuable role that documentary films play, films like Picture a Scientist and Human Nature, in sparking important conversations in education.
