Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. This federal law has been credited with forever changing education in the United States by prohibiting discrimination on the basis of sex in educational programs and activities.
Millions of women have benefited from Title IX.
Title IX led to the rise of collegiate women’s athletic programs and professional leagues, it expanded opportunities for women in science and technology fields and it added protection from sex discrimination, including sex-based harassment and sexual violence on campus.
During this program, the panel focuses on:
- The history of Title IX
- Current status of Title IX
- The women impacted by Title IX
As part of this informative program, you are invited to share your own experience about how Title IX has impacted your life—both personally and professionally. You are invited to contact program planner and moderator Nancy Conrad to discuss the program and your Title IX experience. Please contact Nancy directly at Nancy Conrad.
