CWLC's Senior Staff Attorney Amy Poyer and Legal Aid At Work's Senior Staff Attorney Kim Turner presented "Creating A Level Playing Field for Girls: Title IX Athletics in Schools and Beyond" on October 24, 2018.
Girls who play sports in their youth earn higher grades, are more likely to graduate, go to college and experience success in their careers as adults. Almost 90% of female executives of Fortune 500 companies have played organized sports at some level. Low-income girls and girls of color experience athletic discrimination at even higher levels. Although Title IX has been the law for 46 years, girls across the country are still regularly subjected to inferior athletic equipment, facilities and opportunities compared to their male counterparts. Join us for a training on the legal requirements mandating equity for girls playing sports in high school and at youth parks and recreation facilities in California.
