The Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity Outstanding Achievement Awards
The Committee on Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity (CSOGD) of the American Psychological Association (APA) annually presents one or two Outstanding Achievement Awards to recognize psychologists for significant contributions to the mission of CSOGD. This mission is to:
Study and evaluate on an ongoing basis how the issues and concerns of sexual orientation and gender diverse (e.g., Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Queer [LGBTQ]) psychologists can best be dealt with.
Encourage objective and unbiased research in areas relevant to sexual orientation and gender diverse (e.g., LBGTQ) adults and youths and the social impact of such research.
Examine the consequences of inaccurate information and stereotypes about sexual orientation and gender diverse (e.g., LBGTQ) adults and youth in clinical practice.
Develop educational materials for distribution to psychologists and others.
Make recommendations regarding the integration of these issues into the APA's activities to further the cause of human rights of sexual orientation and gender diverse (e.g., LBGTQ) individuals and communities.
Nominees may have made significant contributions to CSOGD's mission either through direct CSOGD service or through independent work. The contributions may be of a scientific, professional, educational, leadership or political nature.
No current members of CSOGD or staff of the Sexual Orientation and Gender Diversity Program at the time of the award are eligible for consideration.
All nominations should include:
A letter of nomination including a brief description of the specific achievements and contributions of the nominee (500 word maximum).
A current curriculum vitae.
The names of three people who have been asked by the nominator to send reference letters by the deadline.
The deadline for nominations is May 1.
