How has your science impacted you and your community?

BRiDGE2Impacts provides an opportunity for the BRiDGE speaker to highlight their contributions to their wider communities. This can be a traditional lecture or follow a different format (i.e. a workshop, panel discussion, etc.) that maximizes the potential impact of the event. Topics covered include, but are not limited to, discussions on pedagogy, participation in outreach, and/or narratives on identity in STEM.

After each BRiDGE2Impacts talk, graduate students are asked to reflect on the speaker’s talk. At BRiDGE, we believe these personal reflections about each BRiDGE Scholar’s story help all scientists connect and find community.
