**SPRING 2021 UPDATE** We’re building a Broader Impacts Database (BIDB) by collecting outreach, diversity, and education success stories and new ideas from people like you. You can easily help us build this community resource by contributing!

The BIDB will:

  • Provide examples of successful projects and best practices in Broader Impacts for the geoscience community;
  • Provide a repository for promising – but unfunded – Broader Impacts ideas submitted by community members, where others may discover new ideas and collaborators, for the mutual benefit of both; and
  • Document the Broader Impacts products of the community, with the goal of providing academic credit for these products. (Similar to recognition of peer reviews through Publons, or Data Citations that advance CV credit for use of one’s datasets by other researchers.)

We encourage any researcher who is interested to submit an entry HERE.
