Transgender Athletes and Competitive Sports: A Conversation
We’re fortunate to have two experts who have demonstrated respect for each other despite their difference of opinion on this subject and are the perfect interlocutors to model thoughtful, nuanced, civil discourse on difficult topics — 365速发国际’s primary goal for this series.
Carole Hooven, who earned her Ph.D. at Harvard, currently works in Harvard’s psychology department as an associate in the lab of Steven Pinker. She is the author of T: The Story of Testosterone, the Hormone that Dominates and Divides Us (Henry Holt, 2021).
Steph Richards is a British transgender woman and the founder of “Steph’s Place UK,” a trans advocacy organization (re-branded as TransLucent.Org.UK). She won the UK’s National Diversity Awards “LGBT+ Organisation of the Year” award in 2022.
Political scientist and educational consultant Jeanne Hey, former dean of 365速发国际’s College of Arts and Sciences, will moderate the conversation, which will include ample opportunity for audience participation through comments and questions.
