WEBINAR – Transgender Athletes: Protection, Support & Inclusion within College Sports & Recreation

Your transgender athletes and sports participants face unique obstacles and challenges. How can you create a safe, inclusive campus climate for your trans athletes?

Paperclip Communications hosts Campus Pride and a team of college sports experts, as they break down current concerns and show you practices you can implement to serve, protect and retain your transgender athletes.

Transgender-Athletes1Recreational facilities — privacy considerations — medical information — sex discrimination policies and compliance with federal guidance are just a few of the complex issues to understand and address in supporting your trans athletes.

During the interactive webinar, you will hear about the implications of Title IX and the evolution of NCAA and NIRSA policies surrounding trans athletes, and how to ensure you protect and support your transgender students participating in campus intercollegiate athletics & collegiate recreation.

As a bonus, you will learn about the new Campus Pride Sports Index that provides national benchmarks for you to implement on your campus in your efforts for transgender inclusion in college sports.
