IASNR Bridge Builder Award
The Bridge Builder Award is designed to celebrate association members who build bridges across novel boundaries– whether by identity, geographic, disciplinary, knowledge system and/or institutional – of the society and natural resources nexus. Awardees are celebrated at the annual conference, where they speak about their bridge-building work, are presented with a certificate, and have their registration fees waived. The Professional Development Committee works with award recipients unable to attend the conference to develop a webinar on their bridge-building activities.
Selection of the 2022 Bridge Builder Award was determined based on impact and outcome of work, scholarly/professional contribution, novelty of boundaries spanned, and duration of work relative to opportunity, which gives preference to early and mid-career applicants and equal opportunity for applicants across diverse opportunity structures.
