In celebration of Women’s History Month, Berkeley Lab’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Office and the Women Scientists and Engineers Council (WSEC) will be screening the National Geographic documentary film “Jane” about primatologist and anthropologist Jane Goodall. The event will be held on Friday, March 30th at the Building 50 Auditorium from 12:00-1:30 p.m.
“Drawing from over 100 hours of never-before-seen footage that has been tucked away in the National Geographic archives for over 50 years, award-winning director Brett Morgen tells the story of Jane, a woman whose chimpanzee research challenged the male-dominated scientific consensus of her time and revolutionized our understanding of the natural world. Set to a rich orchestral score from legendary composer Philip Glass, the film offers an unprecedented, intimate portrait of Jane Goodall — a trailblazer who defied the odds to become one of the world’s most admired conservationists.”
