2021 Award Recipient
 

Elizabeth Meyer
University of Colorado, Boulder

Dr. Elizabeth Meyer has been a pathbreaker throughout her career. Her research focuses on gender and sexual diversity in schools, an intellectual agenda begun at a time when few scholars ventured into these topics. Dr. Meyer created a conceptual framework, gendered harassment, that forms the foundation of research, policy, and practice designed to improve educational environments for LGBTQ youth. Her research on Gay-Straight Alliances, teachers of transgender and gender creative youth, and legal protections and case law form a foundation for the field. Dr. Meyer has set the highest example for scholarly accomplishment in the study of gender in education.

Established in 2006, the Distinguished Contributions to Gender Equity in Education Research Award recognizes individuals within AERA for distinguished research, professional practice, and activities that advance public understanding of gender and/or sexuality at any level in the education community. This award will be presented to an individual whose professional career has been devoted in substantial part to the study of gender and/or sexuality in education, and who has significantly advanced the field through extraordinary leadership, scholarship, or professional practice. The AERA Committee on Scholars and Advocates for Gender Equity in Education is charged by AERA Council with serving as the selection committee for this award.
