NEW SWS AWARD! SWS Applied Sociology Award:

As an organization that both welcomes and supports the leadership of sociologists from diverse race, class, and ethnic backgrounds, as well as gender identities, ages, sexualities and abilities, this award formally recognizes SWS’s welcoming and supportive spirit to feminist applied sociologists.
