ARIS Advanced Broader Impacts Webinars

  • Zoom


April 21, 2021 ; 1-3  PM  CT - Broader Impacts Identity

Most researchers are comfortable thinking about and discussing their research identity – who they are as researchers and what contributions they hope to make to their discipline through their research over the course of their careers.  It is far less common, however, for researchers to think about their impact identity – the lasting impacts they aspire to have on their community and on society, as a whole, through their broader impacts work.  This interactive workshop will introduce the concept of a broader impacts identity and walk investigators through a process for starting to define BI identity.  While any researcher is likely to benefit from this workshop, it is particularly relevant to early-career researchers (as well as to broader impacts professionals who work with researchers and can play a crucial role in helping them develop their BI identities).
