Distinguished Contributions to Gender Equity in Education Research Award

2022 Award Recipient
 

Kimberly A. Scott
Arizona State University

The recipient of the 2022 Distinguished Contributions to Gender Equity in Education Research Award is Dr. Kimberly A. Scott. Dr. Scott is a ground-breaking researcher and exceptional thought leader. Her scholarship has carved out new pathways for women and girls of color in STEM. Dr. Scott’s research focuses on the ways in which gender and race intersect to shape the experiences of STEM learners in schools and outside-of-school learning communities. As a scholar-activist who brings awareness to racial and gender justice in her research pursuits, Dr. Scott’s conceptualization of girls of color as “technosocial change agents” is exemplary evidence of her visionary leadership and commitment to gender and racial equity in educational research and professional practice.

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.
