Opening and Closing Keynote Speakers Announced


Opening Keynote - Consent and Prevention


ATIXA & SCOPE welcome Laci Green to the conference as this year’s opening Keynote. Laci is a YouTuber, public speaker, and activist from Los Angeles. She is best known as the woman behind the internet’s most popular sex education show: Sex Plus. Sex Plus reaches 5 million young adults every month and is viewed in all 196 countries. In 2011, Laci graduated with highest honors from UC Berkeley and currently holds a certificate in rape and dating violence crisis counseling. Since graduating, she has worked with many schools, government organizations, and media outlets on sexual health and sexual violence prevention efforts. She is also the host/writer of MTV Braless and produces an educational series for Planned Parenthood. Laci will be addressing the conference about her online consent and prevention work.


Closing Keynote - Legislation & Litigation: An Update


ATIXA & SCOPE welcome as our closing Keynote panelists the four partners of The NCHERM Group, who have been intimately involved in many of these cases. Join W. Scott Lewis, Saundra K. Schuster, Brett A. Sokolow and Daniel C. Swinton, as they review some of the most significant cases from their insider perspective, identifying trends and helping conference attendees to understand the trajectory of future potential litigation so that attendees can redouble efforts to keep college campuses and school districts out of the headlines and the courtrooms. Additionally, panelists will review legislation that may be coming in the not-too-distant future. Learn where legislation and litigation have taken us and where it will take us in the future so you can begin preparing today.

Title IX/Civil Rights Investigator Mentorship Service

We’re all looking to increase the professionalism and competence of our campus investigators. Even if they’ve been to ATIXA training, and even if they keep up with the ATIXA professional development literature and read Title IX Today, the learning curve is still steep. The NCHERM Group has developed a professional mentoring service for your investigators to help take them to the next level. The mentorship is a practical, hands-on collaboration where an expert TNG investigator works side-by-side with your campus investigator(s) to conduct an investigation on your campus. Rather than doing the investigation for you, the TNG investigator’s role is to model techniques, shadow your investigators, provide feedback and offer coaching to bring their skills to the next level. A written report of strengths/weaknesses and future training priorities can be provided after the on-site investigation/mentorship. Often, seeing how an expert investigator performs their function in the field can help to cement key skills investigators need to acquire, whether it be in questioning, analysis, report writing or other areas of professional competence. Let us coach your investigators to success on your next tough case! For more information, contact Ryan McDavis, at (610) 993-0229, ext. 1009.
