Amber Manning-Ouellette, lecturer in leadership studies at Iowa State University, has been selected to receive a 2017 Gender and Sexuality Research Award from the university. Manning-Ouellette was nominated for her work to illuminate the voices of women and their experiences, including those who had experienced sexual violence. The Gender and Sexuality Research Award is given to an Iowa State faculty or staff member or graduate student who has made important and innovative contributions in research expanding understandings of gender and sexuality and issues of equity and social justice related to gender and sexuality. Ebony Williams, a graduate student in human development and family studies, will also receive the award. Her research focuses on African-American women with college degrees and their higher likelihood of never marrying or marrying later in life than any other racial group. Both women will be honored during the Gender and Sexuality Equity Awards Reception on March 22, in the atrium of Hach Hall. More information about the recipients and the event is available online.
