Sarah Flicker is a York Research Chair in community-based participatory research and full professor in the Faculty of Environmental and Urban Change. She is engaged in an exciting program of research that focuses on the engagement of youth and other actors in environmental, sexual, and reproductive justice. More broadly, she is interested in community-based participatory methodologies and is active on a variety of research teams that focus on adolescent sexual health, well-being, and responding to gender-based violence in Canada and South Africa. Recently, she has published in the areas of health promotion, sexuality, ethics, decolonizing methodologies, participatory visual methods, and community-based participatory research methods. Her research has informed policy at the municipal, provincial, and federal levels. Sarah and her teams have won several prestigious awards for youth engagement in health research. Sarah is a straight, white, upper-middle-class, able-bodied, Jewish, cisgender female, of immigrant/settler descent who tries to understand the pervasive effects of privilege and her roles and responsibilities as a treaty person. She is an inaugural member of the Royal Society of Canada’s College of New Scholars, Artists and Scientists.
