Title IX: The Next 50 Years

“What should the next 50-years look like to truly achieve a vision of inclusion in sports and physical activity?”
12:00 PM ET | Duration: 45 minutes

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.

Inclusion & Belonging in Sports

“Are sports/physical education inclusive of everyone?”
1:00 PM ET | Duration: 45 minutes

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.

Redefining Health

“Does it take more than physical health to win?”
2:00 PM ET | Duration: 45 minutes

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.
