Time: 5:30pm - 09:00pm

Location: Tonkin + Taylor Tauranga, 1 Devenport Road, Tauranga, Bay of Plenty

Join us as we partner with Tonkin + Taylor and Engineering New Zealand for a viewing of ‘Fascinating and frightening examinations of bias’ followed by an empowering panel session.

The panel discussion will focus on positive action for increasing diversity in STEM and leadership. We’ll hear about what people and organisations have done to tackle inequality, and uplifting moments in careers where equality ‘barriers’ were overcome.

Picture a Scientist is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science.
