Discuss inclusion and the Winter Olympics at International Education Week event

As a part of International Education week, the Case Western Reserve University community is invited to consider the upcoming Winter Olympics through the lens of LGBT rights at “From Russia to Cleveland: Politics, Sports and the LGBT Experience.”

At the event, a panel of speakers will speak about the GG9 (Gay Games 2014), which will be held in Cleveland, and how global thinking at a local level has been incorporated into preparing to host athletes and visitors from all over the country and the world, with a goal of creating an inclusive experience for all.

The event will be held Friday, Nov. 15, from 12:30 to 2:00 p.m. in Clark Hall 206 (Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities). 

The event is sponsored by the Center for International Affairs, the LGBTCenter, and the Department of Physical Education and Athletics.
