Award Committee Assessment

There were many worthy contenders, but the research question, methodology, writing and execution of “Off to Market: Neighborhood and Individual Employment Barriers for Women in 21st Century American Cities” made it a winner across multiple categories. The implications of the research are important across disciplines, and the question of how the constructs of gender, place, and support networks come together to affect employment opportunities was elegantly examined. The article also offers some fundamental insights into how neighborhoods and individual characteristics interplay in ways that can have serious policy implications, and thus makes the work both timely and relevant.
