ABOUT THE FILM
Biologist Nancy Hopkins, chemist Raychelle Burks, and geologist Jane Willenbring lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences as female scientists, ranging from brutal harassment to years of subtle slights. Along the way, encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
Nancy Hopkins is a molecular biologist and professor of biology at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is known for her research identifying the role genes play in longevity and cancer predisposition in adult fish, as well as for her work promoting equality of opportunity for women scientists in academia. She is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy, and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
Raychelle Burks is a professor of analytical chemistry at St. Edward’s University in Austin, Texas. Her research focuses on developing low-cost colorimetric sensors for detecting chemicals of forensic interest, including explosives and regulated drugs. As a science communicator, Burks has appeared on the Science Channel’s Outrageous Acts of Science, the American Chemical Society’s Reactions videos, Royal Society of Chemistry podcasts, and at genre conventions such as DragonCon and GeekGirlCon. Burks was awarded the 2020 American Chemical Society Grady-Stack award for excellence in public engagement.
Jane Willenbring is a geomorphologist and professor of geology at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, and director of the Scripps Cosmogenic Isotope Laboratory. Willenbring’s research examines the evolution of the Earth’s surface, especially how landscapes are affected by tectonics, climate change, and life on Earth. She is a 2018 Geological Society of America Fellow, and the recipient of the Antarctica Service Medal and the National Science Foundation CAREER Award.
ACRM is an organization made up of a vibrant group of diverse rehabilitation professionals from around the world who work collaboratively to help improve the lives of all people with disabilities, regardless of race, creed, color, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age and economic status.
We stand firmly against all forms of racism and discrimination throughout our communities, among our membership, and within our staff. We commit to expanding our actions to fight racism and other inequalities in all its forms and to further engage our colleagues from all minority groups.
ACRM is committed to addressing issues on diversity, equality, and inclusion. In April, we amended our ad hoc Committee on Diversity, Equality and Inclusion to a permanent standing committee co-chaired by Monique R. Pappadis, MEd, PhD and Mark A. Hirsch, PhD, FACRM. This committee was formed to facilitate multi-stakeholder collaboration on matters related to diversity, equity and inclusion that are not only pertinent to ACRM and the rehabilitation community, but also guided by ACRM’s mission of improving the lives of persons with disabilities through interdisciplinary rehabilitation research.
We strive to ensure equitable access to high quality rehabilitation services and research opportunities and close the gap on all issues of inequality. We aim to respectfully celebrate our diversity, develop and implement equitable practices, and institute programming and awards that reflect diversity, equity, and inclusion. We advocate for the underserved, the forgotten, the disadvantaged, and minorities.
We urge all ACRM members to participate in open dialogue, to promote inclusivity and to identify strategies to ensure ACRM represents the diversity of rehabilitation worldwide.
If you have suggestions to improve ACRM’s efforts on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, please email suggestions to DEI@acrm.org.
