Film Discussion- Hidden Figures
A Special Discussion with:

and Elissa Schwartz, Associate Professor, School of Biological Sciences and Department of Mathematics & Statistics
The Women in Film, Literature, and the Arts Discussion Series is hosted by the Professional Development Initiative (PDI) in partnership with the Association for Faculty Women (AFW) as a means for students, faculty and staff to read a book, watch a film, or attend an exhibit or performance for pleasure, rather than what is assigned for classes. This series contributes to the promotion of a diverse and vibrant intellectual community on campus for those interested in women’s issues. It is designed to create a space for women and men to gather and talk about issues important to women through literature, film, and (visual and performing) art.
Participants: You do not have to be a graduate student or be officially affiliated with AFW to attend the meetings. All WSU students, faculty, and staff who are interested in the series are invited to participate.
All PDI events will be available to sites other than Pullman through a web link that will be emailed to you before the event. Please make sure to register on the link below and indicate at which WSU site you are located.

About the Hidden Figures:
Three brilliant African-American women at NASA — Katherine Johnson (Taraji P. Henson), Dorothy Vaughan (Octavia Spencer) and Mary Jackson (Janelle Monáe) — serve as the brains behind one of the greatest operations in history: the launch of astronaut John Glenn (Glen Powell) into orbit, a stunning achievement that restored the nation’s confidence, turned around the Space Race and galvanized the world.
