NSF AD for CISE Margaret Martonosi Video on the Importance of Departmental BPC Plans

Margaret R. Martonosi
In this short video, Margaret Martonosi, the Assistant Director for the NSF Directorate of Computer and Information Science and Engineering, emphasizes the importance of Departmental Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) Plans.

Departmental BPC Plans are important because they help departments:

  • reaffirm their commitment to equity and inclusion,
  • identify and organize their BPC related goals and activities,
  • and support PIs in their department who are submitting CISE proposals requiring a Project BPC Plan at the time of award.

We encourage you to submit Departmental BPC Plans to BPCnet.org. Click here to view the Call for Submissions Announcement. Click here to watch a previous Departmental BPC Plan Workshop.
