A groundbreaking Athletes and Abuse Symposium, which will be held at the University of Pennsylvania, will explore the abuse and neglect of athletes at every level. Against the backdrop of the #MeToo movement, experts on sports will address the problems now emerging within the sports arena. The symposium will address youth, high school and college, Olympic, and professional sports.


This one-day symposium is the first university event to closely examine athletes and abuse across the spectrum of sports and ages. Leading experts, athletes, officials, and policymakers will shine a light on the challenges and on how to change the sports culture that puts athletes at risk.
