NIH To Screen ‘Picture a Scientist’ Documentary

Flyer for the film screening shows original movie poster drawing featuring 3 female scientists, each in lab setting

In recognition of Women’s History Month, the Office of Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and NHLBI will sponsor an on-demand virtual screening of the documentary film Picture a Scientist for the entire NIH community Mar. 22–26.

This 2020 official selection from the Tribeca Film Festival spotlights three researchers who are reshaping the culture of science for women. In addition to recounting experiences of harassment and institutional discrimination, these empowering women offer new perspectives for making the sciences more diverse and equitable for all. 

NIH is committed to cultivating an inclusive environment for people of all genders and backgrounds. All NIH staff, as well as family members and friends, can RSVP on the EDI website to receive a reminder when the screening opens at

EDI and NHLBI also will co-host a panel discussion on Thursday, Apr. 8, about fostering a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace for women at NIH. More information will be coming soon.
