How to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.
Präsentiert von Bruker BioSpin

PICTURE A SCIENTIST is a feature-length documentary film chronicling the groundswell of researchers who are writing a new chapter for women scientists. A biologist, a chemist and a geologist lead viewers on a journey deep into their own experiences in the sciences, overcoming brutal harassment, institutional discrimination, and years of subtle slights to revolutionize the culture of science. From cramped laboratories to spectacular field sites, we also encounter scientific luminaries who provide new perspectives on how to make science itself more diverse, equitable, and open to all.


“Quietly devastating.” – The Boston Globe

“Fascinating and frightening examination of bias.” – WGBH

“Sweeping in scope yet intimately compelling.” – Science

An inclusive workplace is defined as a work environment that makes every employee feel valued while also acknowledging their differences and how these differences contribute to the organization’s culture and business outcomes.

An inclusive workplace is characterized by affirmative action, wherein any impact of bias/discrimination/unequal opportunity is negated.

Let’s work together to make Bruker a truly inclusive workplace!

-Nathalie Pierrisnard

Un lieu de travail inclusif est défini comme un environnement de travail où chaque employé se sent valorisé tout en reconnaissant ses différences et la manière dont ces différences contribuent à la culture de l’organisation et à ses résultats commerciaux.

Un lieu de travail inclusif se caractérise par une action positive, qui annule tout impact des préjugés, de la discrimination et de l’inégalité des chances”

Travaillons ensemble à faire de Bruker un véritable lieu de travail inclusif !

-Nathalie Pierrisnard

Ein integrativer Arbeitsplatz ist definiert als ein Arbeitsumfeld, in dem sich jeder Mitarbeiter wertgeschätzt fühlt und gleichzeitig seine Unterschiede und deren Beitrag zur Unternehmenskultur und zu den Geschäftsergebnissen anerkannt werden. Ein integrativer Arbeitsplatz zeichnet sich durch positive Maßnahmen aus, bei denen jegliche Auswirkungen von Voreingenommenheit/Diskriminierung/ die Ungleichheit der Chancen negiert werden.

Lassen Sie uns gemeinsam daran arbeiten, Bruker zu einem echten, inklusiven Arbeitsplatz zu machen!
