BERWYN, Pa., Dec. 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of the immense changes to the practice of Title IX work over the last several years, ATIXA has created new Communities of Practice for:
- Title IX Coordinators and Administrators
- Victim/Survivor Advocates & Prevention Educators
- K-12 Educators and Administrators
Now available as new membership levels within ATIXA, the Communities of Practice offer a specialized home to meet the unique needs of particular members' practice areas or constituencies. These Communities of Practice recognize that stratified membership pricing will allow more individuals to benefit from ATIXA membership, as well as facilitating and supporting the lively exchange of information, resources and ongoing and dialogue around Title IX, sexual violence and gender equity. Expanding the base of those who join and participate in ATIXA adds a broader range of member voices who will enhance the thriving ATIXA community and its diversity of lenses and perspectives. By creating connections with other peers within a Community of Practice, participants have the opportunity to discuss successes and challenges, identify trends and best practices and offer issue-specific guidance, all while breaking down the barriers of isolation in their work.
