I feel that personally and as a department we should play a key role in this issue, and that we have a platform will help raise the awareness of gender inequities. As with the university’s approach, I feel that our department’s goals of providing increased funding for female student athletic financial awards (AFAs), increased funding for female coaching leadership and development, and increased opportunities for female-specific recreational & wellness programming. I believe we can work to address the issues now and through an evolution it will become a long-term sustainable approach.
