The first part of the film portrays three professors of mathematics: Professor Karin Baur (School of Mathematics, University of Leeds), Professor Sylvie Paycha (University of Potsdam) and Professor Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb (University of Cambridge), who give an insight into their experiences in an academic career and their efforts for gender equality. In a second part, we get to know the organizers of the “I, Scientist Conference” in Berlin 2018, who share their experiences from the perspective of female early career researchers. Film duration: 40min.
In the subsequent online discussion, you will have the opportunity to talk to Professor Karin Baur and the film maker Agnes Handwerk, as well as to get to know the other participants of the event.
