Does Sex Sell?: Uncovering Media Representations of Women's Sports

Forty percent of all sports participants are female, yet women’s sports receive only 4% of all sport media coverage and female athletes are much more likely than male athletes to be portrayed in sexually provocative poses. To highlight why this matters and address these disparities, Nicole M. LaVoi, the associate director of the Tucker Center for Research on Girls and Women in Sport, will highlight this issue from a variety of perspectives and help dispel the common—but untrue—myths that no one is interested in women’s sport and that "sex sells" women’s sport. Effective strategies are also discussed for increasing media coverage and creating images which reflect the reality of women’s sports participation and why this is so important.

STEM Conference

This one day conference will bring together high school counselors, community college advisers and representatives from each of the STEM departments at UNI to learn what each group is currently doing to advance STEM, discuss the career options available to STEM majors, work toward a common understanding about what students need to learn and do to prepare themselves to pursue majors in STEM disciplines, and discuss proposed curriculum changes in STEM disciplines with impact on transfer students.

Google Analytics Training

UNI faculty and staff are invited to attend Google Analytics Training. Converge Consulting will share strategies for recognizing the information and metrics you should be looking at, as well as identifying key benchmarks for moving forward. This event is sponsored by UNI Continuing Education and Special Programs. Please RSVP.
