Register for this free virtual panel discussion.

An Olympic hero, a groundbreaking high school athlete, and the co-authors of the definitive book on Title IX will gather virtually to discuss the impact of the landmark 1972 legislation that transformed American Sports by vastly expanding opportunities for women’s athletics at the high school and college levels.

The panel will look at the many ways TITLE IX transformed their lives as well as the lives of generations of American women over the past five decades. They will share their stories of how opportunities to participate in sports provided the confidence and determination to excel well after their playing days came to end, thanks to the lessons of leadership, communication, discipline and teamwork gained on the playing field.

And, the ALPLM is equally pleased to have Peggy Kusinski join them as moderator. Peggy has been Chicago’s NBC5 sports reporter since 2000, and is two-time national Emmy Award winner, earned while a producer at ESPN.
