This webinar featured Juniper Eastwood, first NCAA Division I openly transgender athlete competing on a women’s team; Donna deVarona, two-time Olympic gold medalist swimmer, member of USOPC Board of Directors; Joanna Harper, Loughborough University (U.K.), medical physicist, former elite marathoner, transgender athlete; Martina Navratilova, former pro tennis player, most Grand Slam titles won by one player (male or female), long active in LGBTQ rights; Nancy Hogshead Makar, three-time gold medalist swimmer, CEO, Champion Women, civil rights lawyer; Tracy Sundlun, Director, National Scholastic Track and Field Championship, six-time Olympic coach; Donna Lopiano, President, The Drake Group, former UT-Austin Women’s Athletics Director, former CEO, Women’s Sports Foundation. Panelist addressed the topic of transgender athletes in girls’ and women’s interscholastic, intercollegiate and open Olympic and club sports, exploring whether eligibility for participation should be based on an individual’s sex, gender identity or a combination of the two, and how science, law, and social justice should inform sports policy makers.
