Three lawyers walk into a room … and it’s Amy G’s ZOOM room! The topic is Title IX. Listen in as Amy engages in conversation about the law that prohibits discrimination based on sex. It’s been nearly 50 years since the law went into effect. Why are we still talking about it today? Can it be enforced? Do you know your rights? What needs to be done next?
