Talk abstract

"Broader Impacts" is one of only two criteria used by the National
Science Foundation in selecting successful grant proposals.  (Other
funding agencies have similar requirements.) The term encompasses a huge
variety of possible outreach, diversity, education, training, policy,
and other activities - so why are Broader Impacts so often addressed
with uninspiring, poorly organized, underfunded plans? This talk will
provide inspiration and guidance for developing and executing better
Broader Impacts for your next proposal, whether it's at the graduate
student or faculty level, with a particular focus on diversity and
inclusion and on engaging communities outside academia.
