California State University, Stanislaus is set to welcome two crowd-pleasing speakers next week that are guaranteed to present a new twist on finances and gender equality.
David Gardner, co-founder of the widely-popular multimedia financial services company known as The Motley Fool, is scheduled to present “Eight Foolish Thoughts in Investing, Business, and Life” on Thursday as part of the university’s Executive Speaker Series.
During the event, Gardner will give a free, lively and down-to-earth presentation focusing on money management and rational financial choices—something he has demonstrated to be an expert in since establishing the company with his brother in 1993.
The Motley Fool reaches millions of people each month through its website, books, newspaper column, television appearances and subscription newsletter services.
With core values revolving around collaboration, innovation, fun, honesty, competition and “Motley” (foolishness), the company’s main goal is to provide financial solutions for investors of every kind and ultimately “help the world invest better.”
“Eight Foolish Thoughts in Investing, Business, and Life” is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday in the CSU Stanislaus Snider Recital Hall. The event is part of the Executive Speaker series presented by Winton-Ireland, Strom & Green and the CSU Stanislaus College of Business Administration.
Free parking will be made available in Lot 3. Seating is limited, though overflow seating will be provided. For more information, call 667-3131.
In addition to Gardner’s financial advice, the university will also delve into significant issues surrounding equity in athletics with “Title IX from Equal Opportunity to Criminality” featuring historian and lawyer Sarah Fields.
“Sarah Fields is a pioneer in the study of Title IX and its application to participation in athletics,” said professor and chair of the university’s History Department Katherine Royer. “Her presentation should be of interest to educators, athletic directors, parents and anyone else interested in the changing landscape of sports in America.”
In her book, “Female Gladiators: Gender, Law, and Contact Sport in America,” Fields has examined both the legal and social battles centered around the right of women to join men on the playing field. She is also an associate professor in the communications department at University of Colorado, Denver.
Through her work, Fields examines gender equity laws, including Title IX and the 14th Amendment, as well as researches sports-related injury and the role of gender, culture and law in diagnosis and treatment.
“Title IX from Equal Opportunity to Criminality” is sponsored by the university’s College of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, along with the History Department.
The free event is scheduled from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday in the CSU Stanislaus Faculty Development Center. Free parking will be available in Lot 8. For more information call 667-3956 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
