This month’s webinar
March 2011: Commemorating Women in Sports
FREE webinar – Wednesday, March 30, 2011 – 2 p.m. ET – AWSM members and non-members invited!
To close out Women’s History Month, AWSM has pulled together six high-profile women from athletics, the media and government to discuss the state of women’s sports today, and look at the most pertinent issues women in sports currently face in 2011.
The panelists include (schedule subject to change):
• Russlynn Ali, Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education
• Christine Brennan, columnist, USA Today
• Jackie Joyner Kersee, Olympic gold medalist, U.S. Track and Field
• Nancy Lieberman, former WNBA player & coach, current coach of the Texas Legends
• Mariel Zagunis, Olympic gold medalist, U.S. Fencing
Since Title IX was introduced in 1972, the number of women in every field of sports has grown exponentially. What challenges for women still remain? Does the glass ceiling still exist? If so, what opportunities are still closed off to women in sports? What is the next frontier?
Join us for an hour-long discussion about women in sports (Pre-registration is required). Come ready with questions to engage our panelists on the issues they are passionate about. And use the hashtag #AWSMNow to find, follow or share on Twitter!
