Attendees include Jessica Berman, commissioner of the National Women’s Soccer League; Kate Calvin, Ph.D, Chief Scientist and NASA Chief Climate Advisor; Jennifer Doudna, Ph.D., Nobel Prize-winning biochemist and co-founder of CRISPR; Grammy-nominated singer Jewel and more.

“Cronkite is thrilled to be the academic partner for this extremely important Title IX 50th Anniversary event and to work to advance the discussion on gender equality. We teach our sports journalism students to think outside the box, find the stories that really make a difference and understand the role of sport in society. Stories surrounding Title IX and its implications are exactly the kind of reporting we expect from our students,” said Brett Kurland, Associate Dean of Education and Partnerships at Cronkite School.
“Fifty years on from Title IX, it is imperative that we not only examine and celebrate its impact, but also take stock of how far we still have to go to achieve true gender justice,” said Emily Ramshaw, co-founder and CEO of The 19th. “We’re thrilled to not only make room for these important conversations, but to be able to come together safely and in person for the first time since the launch of The 19th.”
