National Geographic's "Gender Revolution: A Journey with Katie Couric"

Gender Revolution will explore the complexities of gender in everyday life, from the moment we are born through our twilight years.  To better understand this complex social and scientific issue, Katie Couric crisscrossed the U.S. to talk with scientists, psychologists, activists, authors and families to learn more about the role of genetics, brain chemistry and modern culture on gender fluidity.  After the film, Sandra Rodriguez (Director, The Center for Student Engagement) and Ricky Salazar (Coordinator, The Center), will facilitate a panel discussion with local campus and community leaders including, Elvira Diaz, Kimi Cole, Jodi Thomas, Jeromy Manke and Jax Skye.
