Student Led Broader Impacts Group
Broad Impacts is ready for the new semester and raring to go!
They start the jam-packed Fall program with a very special guest. On Wednesday September 21st, Dr. Kathie Olsen, a former deputy director of the National Science Foundation, will give the Graduate Program in Neuroscience colloquium on "Understanding Science Policy" (12pm, 2-137 Jackson Hall). Then, at 3:30pm, she will lead a Broad Impacts discussion about the challenges faced by women in science, which will be held in MCB 2-120. Please join us to talk about this very important issue that affects all scientists! Happy hour will follow at Kitty Kat Club.
Here is the full Broad Impacts schedule. You will notice that all but the first session are on Thursday afternoons. Also, we have scheduled two "Policy and Pints" happy hours, which will be fun opportunities for the group to casually get together over drinks and talk current policy events.
