Indiana was the Spotlight State in the February 28, 2014 Washington Update: State Spotlight: Indiana

Education Department Reaches Title IX Agreement with Indianapolis Public Schools
On Thursday, the Department of Education Office for Civil Rights and the Indianapolis Public Schools of Indiana agreed to enforce the school district’s efforts to provide equal athletic opportunities for girls. A Department of Education investigation concluded that the district was in violation of the Title IX Education Amendment of 1972 because its interscholastic athletics program failed to provide girls with an equal opportunity to participate in high school athletics. In order to remedy this violation and comply with Title IX regulations, the district has agreed to provide greater participation opportunities for female athletes and better facilities, equipment, and scheduling for girls' sports.

and another Indiana news story from Feb. 28: A federal appeals court denied University of Notre Dame’s request for an injunction while the school challenges the Affordable Care Act's requirement that its employee and student health plans provide coverage for contraception. This week's decision means that Notre Dame must abide by the requirement at least until the court makes a decision in its ongoing challenge.

 

April 30, 2013 NEW RESEARCH REPORT: Women in Community Colleges: Access to Success  More than ever before, women are relying on community colleges for higher education and workforce preparation. This report recommends policies and practices to help women succeed in community colleges. In particular, we find that child care is a critical issue for student mothers. Women also need more support for pursuing opportunities in STEM and other male-dominated fields. With increased attention and improved outreach to women students, the nation’s community colleges can build on their legacy of providing educational opportunity to all. The issues this report addresses are of particular concern to women at community colleges, but improving outcomes for women will benefit everyone.

Download The Invisible War Program in a Box
The Invisible War is a documentary that addresses the way sexual assault is handled by the military. Use this Program in a Box to host a screening of the film to educate community members about this problem and what they can do to make the military safer for all service members.

  Download Cocktails and Convos Program in a Box
Cocktails and Convos (convo is short for conversation) is a great way to draw in the community in a fun and casual setting where members and nonmembers alike come together and discuss women’s issues. Use this Program in a Box to market your branch to your community and potential members in a low-pressure setting.
