The third event in the ’Dores in Dialogue series, “A Conversation on Bostock v. Clayton County and the Rise of Anti-LGBTQIA+ Legislation,” is a discussion presented in partnership with LAVA (the LGBTQIA+ Association of Vanderbilt Alumni). Bostock v. Clayton County was a 2020 Supreme Court case that ruled that discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity violates Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. We hope you will join us for this important discussion on the ruling’s ongoing relevance in American jurisprudence amid the recent increase of anti-LGBTQIA+ legislation.
Tuesday, June 22
11 a.m.–noon CT
Panelists include the following:
- Tyler Bishop, BA’15, 2020 graduate of Stanford Law School and a lawyer involved in Bostock v. Clayton County through Stanford’s Supreme Court clinic
- Anita Jenious, director of the Office of Equal Opportunity and Access
- Rob Nelson, interim director of LGBTQI+ Life
- Matthew Shaw, assistant professor of public policy and education and assistant professor of law
