Introducing the DEIA and Community Impacts Toolkit Tour: A Faculty Resource

Presented by RTT and Amy Landis

Date: Monday, March 4
Time: 12:00 – 1:00 pm
Location:  Virtual (a Zoom link will be sent to you upon registration)

Funding agencies are increasing their expectations for the integration of diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and justice into funded research. Community impacts – regardless of the name it goes by and which federal agency – can encompass DEIA, energy justice, promoting inclusive and equitable research, community engagement, and workforce development. Whether a proposal requires broader impacts (like NSF), a Community Benefits Plan (like DOE), or something by another name, how the applicant addresses community impacts can increasingly make or break a proposal. 

RTT, partnering with DEIA and justice experts (Dr. Amy Landis and Dr. Jessica Smith), has developed a new Community Impacts Toolkit to provide researchers with guidance and support to write about and thoughtfully integrate community impacts within their proposal activities. This resource will help to ensure that Mines remains competitive in winning federal grants while increasing the quality of DEIA and justice considerations in their work. Join us for this workshop where we will take a tour around this comprehensive resource so you know what’s available and how to get exactly what you need for your next proposal.
