Elizabeth "Libby" Sharrow, Liam Miranda, Jamie Schultz, Helen Carroll

There are National and International calls to "level the playing field" of sports so that cis gender girls and women can compete in sports fairly and without harm. What would truly "leveling the playing field" look like? Is having transitioned genders a meaningful biomarker? How do we measure athletic ability within genders, across genders and with gender diversity? Are there Title IX implications? These are the questions that will be discussed at this expert panel on Sports Participation: Leveling the Playing Field.
