Helen Carroll is the director of the NCLR’s Sports Project, which aims to ensure fair and equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender players, coaches, and administrators at all levels of sport. Before joining the NCLR in 2001, Carroll served as the athletic director at Mills College for 12 years and won an NAIA National Championship as a player with the University of North Carolina-Asheville women’s basketball team in 1984.
Carroll will be joined by Kris Brackmann ‘17, an anthropology and psychology dual major at CMC, who played four years of Athena basketball at CMS. Brackmann completed her senior thesis on the “Gender Division in Sport: Through the Eyes of Female Student-Athletes at CMS” and is proud to present her findings with this discussion led by Carroll in hopes of cultivating a more inclusive culture for the LGBTQ community at the 5Cs.
This Athenaeum program is co-sponsored by the Women and Leadership Alliance and CMS Athletics.
