It was a finalist in the Women’s Issues category for the Foreword Book of the Year Award. She writes for Girl w/ Pen: Bridging Feminist Research & Popular Reality. Recently, Karlyn was granted the Wisconsin Women in Higher Education Leadership Outstanding Achievement Award for her lifelong work promoting equity and inclusion.
