A Level Playing Field: Title IX and Gender Equity in K-12 Athletics
Date training recorded: May 10, 2017
Trainer(s): Amy Poyer, Kim Turner
Sponsoring Organization(s): Legal Aid at Work, California Women’s Law Center (CWLC)
Why do girls need athletics in K-12 schools? Girls who play sports in or before high school are more likely to graduate, less likely to become pregnant, and more likely to make a higher salary later in life than girls who do not play sports. Youth athletics are often cited as a first step toward future success, and the communities most in need of these advantages are those that are predominately low-income and made up of women of color. Young girls in low-income areas are often denied the equal opportunity to play sports or they receive unequal treatment or funding for their sports. We invite you to join us for an informational training webinar to learn about Title IX and other laws that apply to equality in athletics at K-12 schools. Let’s work to create a level playing field for all girls today so they can thrive for a lifetime!
1 hour general CLE credit.
