A forward-thinking discussion focusing on advancing the future of gender equity and inclusion in physical activity and sports
June 21, 2022 | Panel discussions begin at 12 PM ET
This panel will briefly review the progress of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that was passed as part of the Education Amendments of 1972 that protects people from discrimination based on sex, including sexual orientation and gender identity, in education programs or activities that receive federal financial assistance.
Panelists will think critically about Title IX and its contemporary application to issues surrounding gender equity in sports and physical activity, as well as the policy’s impact.
For any group activity to be truly inclusive, all must feel like they belong. This panel will examine inclusion in sports and physical education through the lens of belonging which welcomes all girls and their peers.
Panelists will have the opportunity to reflect on their own experiences participating in sports and physical activity and on the ways that inclusion can further foster greater trust, belonging, and safety.
In sports and physical activity, “winning” is often narrowly portrayed as the result of optimum physical health and ability. However, research shows that strong integrated health is essential to overall well-being and success.
Panelists will have the opportunity to share their stories of how success in sports and physical activity were affected by their physical, mental, and social-emotional fortitude, while providing game-changing solutions for a supporting an integrated approach to health in organized activity.
Directly following the Girls in Motion event, participants will have the opportunity to engage in their own professional development to help girls stay active. Explore how to identify barriers to girls’ participation in sports and physical activity, how to encourage youth voice and choice, and how to apply change in girls’ out-of-school-time and physical activity programs in your own community.*
