ProQuest's 'Panel Tackles the Need for Advancing Diversity and Inclusion in STEM'

When You Picture a Scientist, Who Do You See? is a free virtual event hosted by ProQuest, Scientific American, FILM PLATFORM, and ro*co films on March 24, 2021, at 3 p.m. EDT (registration is required). Laura Helmuth, Scientific American’s editor in chief, will moderate, and participants will include Jennifer Doudna (a Nobel Prize in Chemistry winner), Raychelle Burks (a chemist at American University), Jane Willenbring (a geologist at Stanford University), and Eva Pietri (a research psychologist at Indiana University-Purdue University–Indianapolis).

The event aims to give participants “a better sense of understanding of—and passion for—advancing diversity in STEM fields and beyond,” and “the discussion will focus on the experience of each panelist as leaders in their field, the obstacles they overcame, and positive solutions for advancing equity.”

For more information, read the press release.
