This Week's Brown Bag (SEPTEMBER 20)

This week’s Brown Bag is titled “Title IX Success Stories in Women’s Athletics” and will take place on Tuesday, September 20th at 11:30 am in the Center for Women’s Studies.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with the center, it is located in the basement of East Hall.  As always, a free lunch will be provided and all are welcome!

This particular lunch-time talk will be given by 4 women in athletics here at Colgate. Vicky Chun, the senior associate athletic director, will mediate as Cathy Foto (head field hockey coach), Kathy Brown (head women’s soccer coach), and Ann-Marie Guglieri (associate athletic director) all share stories. This should be an interesting discussion as these women want to shed light on the positive aspects of Title IX.  A lot of information out there regards Title IX as a negative thing, but this Brown Bag will look at the successful parts of Title IX and what it has given to women athletes.

In accordance with typical Brown Bags, students will be encouraged to ask questions at the end of the presentation to keep discussion going! Hope to see you there!
