GenderHEP Journal Club
The GenderHEP Journal Club meeting will take place on Wednesdays from 12:00 till 13:00.
During the meeting we are going to present scientific articles on equal opportunity issues.
Each person has maximally 20 minutes to present some interesting results/ideas in an informal way. The speaker can use projector to show a relevant paper plus blackboard.
No PowerPoint presentations!
Since women are still wildly underrepresented in physics the main goal of this journal club is to understand:
• Why there's a problem.
• How we can solve it.
The idea is to have 1-hour meeting regularly (but not more often than once a month).

Topic: Picture a Scientist
Speakers: Online Viewing
Picture a Scientist is a 2020 documentary highlighting gender inequality in science. The movie tells the stories of several prominent female researchers, and brings to light the barriers they encountered, including cases of discrimination and harassment. The movie features MIT's professor of biology Nancy Hopkins, the chemist Raychelle Burks and the geoscientist Jane Willenbring, among other scientists. The film took part in the Tribeca Film Festival in April 2020. A number of research institutions have held screenings of the movie as parts of efforts to increase awareness of gender issues within STEM.
