Screening of the film "Picture a Scientist"
The Israeli Geological Society works to promote gender fairness and the optimal contribution of researchers among the community of earth and environmental sciences in Israel.
As part of this activity, we have acquired the rights to screen the film Picture a Scientist and we invite members of the community to watch the film and participate in a panel to discuss the issues raised in the film.
The film Picture a Scientist presents the challenges facing women in the sciences, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through the personal stories of three researchers in the fields of biology, chemistry and geology.
