Sue Rosenberg Zalk Award for Distinguished Service to the Society for the Psychology of Women
The award will be presented at APA's convention and carries a $500 honorarium.
At the time of her death in 2001, Sue Rosenberg Zalk, PhD, was book series editor. In the course of over 20 years of service to the division, Zalk was APA program chair and chaired committees and task forces on recruitment, fellows selection, awards, the Hyde Graduate Student Research Grant, mentoring, feminist submissions to mainstream journals, and the urban initiative, and was liaison to Div. 51 (Psychology of Men & Masculinity) and the Association for Psychological Science. She rarely missed an Executive Committee meeting and was forthright, insightful, strategic, and diplomatic in her comments. She also assisted other committee chairs with their responsibilities and was a mentor and friend to many SPW members.
To nominate a candidate, please send a letter to the committee that addresses the nominee's length of service to SPW, the variety and significance of her or his activities in SPW, and the candidate's contributions to SPW that have yet to be formally recognized. The strength of the nominating letter is important and may include input from up to three others beyond the nominator. Please append to this letter a list of positions held by the nominee in SPW, including the start and end date for each entry.
Please submit a single, complete nominating letter for each candidate, to Kate Richmond.
