Making Race Heard 2011 Summit
10:30 AM -  2:00 PM

Making Race Heard is a student-driven initiative at the University of Michigan School of Social Work that aims to bring race to the forefront of our experiences as professionals and future social workers. Despite primarily serving Detroit and surrounding areas, there was a general lack of acknowledgement around how race affects our work and so this monthly series was developed. It was our hope to foster an environment that would allow students, faculty, staff, and community members to come together and discuss how issues of race and other social identities impact our personal and professional lives.

SHARP Insights: How Title IX Changed the Game - the cultural impact of Title IX
12:00 PM -  1:30 PM
Lecture by Michael Messner, Professor and Chair of Sociology, Professor of Gender Studies, University of Southern California

Title IX is widely known and has become synonymous in many Americans' minds with gender equity in sport. Yet, like any law, it is limited. Inequities continue inside and outside of sport--inequities that are beyond the direct legal reach of Title IX. Misunderstanding the limits of Title IX has an ironic effect. On the one hand, it can fuel a backlash that blames Title IX for problems associated with some men's sports. On the other hand, it can lead to advocates of women's and girls' sports to overemphasize Title IX as the pivotal site for gender equity strategies. Drawing in part from recent research on youth sports, Messner will shed light on the cultural impact, limits, and possibilities of Title IX.
