    Transgender issues in sports have gained increased political, legal, and social interest at all levels of athletic competition. The critical debate focuses on whether providing women with equal opportunities is consistent with current efforts to provide transgendered persons with those same opportunities. One side of the debate asserts that transgendered athletes have a distinct competitive advantage. Conversely, transgender advocates believe these fears are unwarranted, invalid, and undermine fairness and inclusion. Given the wide sweeping impact and importance of these issues, this program will focus on topics related to public and private policies restricting transgendered athletes from participating in women’s sports.
