Diverse Intelligences Initiative Evaluation and Impact Strategy

How can the Diverse Intelligences (DI) Initiative – originally launched in 2016 by the Templeton World Charity Program – extend its impact within and beyond the academy? This multi-phase project began with a mid-term evaluation of the ambitious DI initiative. We surveyed the growing DI community, the portfolio of funded projects, and opportunities to increase community engagement and impact among grantees. In a second phase of work, we are focusing on how to cultivate a thriving DI community looking out to 2030, after the end of the formal initiative. Using surveys and in-person interviews, we are also identifying opportunities for additional network development, training, conference, and scientist exchange opportunities, and for opportunities to influence policy in areas like education, resource management, and artificial intelligence. Most recently we collaborated on planning and design for the annual conference, hosted panels on policy impacts, DI futures, and career development, designed and facilitated a series of interactive training workshops; and captured videos on the DI community and research.
