- They’re challenging the status quo and breaking barriers in science: Join comedian Francesca Fiorentini for a biting stand-up set followed by a no-holds-barred panel discussion with cardiac surgeon, Dr. Amy Fiedler, director of research at the Distributed AI Research Institute (DAIR), Dr. Alex Hanna, astrophysicist Dr. Nia Imara, and Academy head librarian, Rebekah Kim. These brilliant minds are ready to spill the tea on what it's really like to push against the man in the world of science.
- Join the Academy’s Institute for Biodiversity Science & Sustainability (IBSS) Program Manager, Kel Larkin, for a talk exploring the fun-damentals of gender and the diverse ways gender is expressed throughout the animal kingdom.
What's gender got to do with it? More than you think. Hear how scientists push the boundaries of the binary to create change and expand inclusion. The third and final volume in the NightLife: Says Who? series amplifies the work of scientists who are paving the way for progress in a patriarchal system that often works against them.
