Acquire Practical Skills to Guide Your Institution in Navigating Compliance Challenges Related to Sex/Gender Discrimination

This course focuses on sex discrimination compliance responsibilities. It covers the assessment of overall program equity and provides introductions to athletics equity, pregnancy and related conditions requirements, and LGBTQIA+ protections.

ATIXA’s expert faculty members will guide participants through ATIXA’s model formal grievance process from a sex/gender discrimination complaint perspective. Discussions will also cover how institutions can center resolutions that involve disparate treatment and impact, including targeted culture/climate assessments and investigations. Lastly, the course will address what institutions can expect when the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights (OCR) reviews their program equity compliance and how to develop a plan to complete gender equity audits regularly.
