Luncheon takes place at the Hyatt Regency Coralville Hotel & Conference Center, 300 E 9th St, Coralville 52241.

See the registration website for tiered ticket prices. Tickets range from individual $25 tickets for virtual attendance to multiple levels of VIP tickets. 

This year marks the 50th anniversary of Title IX, the landmark legislation that prohibits gender-based discrimination in federally funded schools and athletic programs. This year’s Luncheon theme, Calling the Shots: Celebrating Iowa’s Unwavering Champions for Women & Girls, recognizes the trailblazing leaders who fought for Title IX and changed the game for women and girls in sports.

Our program will pay tribute Dr. Christine Grant, a Title IX task force consultant who was a tireless advocate for inclusion and gender equity in athletics and a dear friend of the Iowa Women’s Foundation. Dr. Grant passed away last year, and it is our honor to celebrate her many accomplishments at this year’s Luncheon.

Attendees will also hear from Lisa Bluder, Head Coach for the Iowa Hawkeyes women’s basketball team, who was hired by Dr. Grant in 2000. Empowered and inspired by her mentor, Dr. Grant, Coach Bluder has followed in her successful footsteps, becoming the all-time winningest coach in the program’s history.

Joining us as our keynote speaker is Dr. Amy Wilson, Managing Director of Inclusion for the NCAA, who was also mentored by the late, great Dr. Grant. We’re excited to hear about the successes and challenges she’s faced throughout her impressive career as an expert on gender equity in collegiate athletics!
