This year we celebrated the 50th anniversary of the passage of Title IX. How has Title IX evolved since its enactment and what should we all understand about this revolutionary civil rights law?
In this episode of, She Talks Law, Jennifer Jovcevski is joined by Elizabeth Canning, a lawyer and human resources professional, and Kacey Houston Walker, counsel and deputy leader of Nixon Peabody’s Higher Education team. Elizabeth and Kacey give a background of Title IX, get us up to speed on the latest developments, and explain how colleges and universities are trying to keep up.
In addition, you'll hear about the similarities between Title IX and the Civil Rights Act, and other laws protecting individuals from discrimination on the basis of a protected class.
