  • There are several UWLP events outside of the Wasatch Front in April: 
    • an evening event with Snow College in Ephraim on April 17th titled,Strengthen Your Impact as Girls & Women. Abby Cox (wife of Lt. Governor Cox), Janet Carlston (First Lady of Snow College), and Karen Soper (Principal of Manti Elementary) will be panelists, and Dr. Madsen will be briefly speaking on why graduating from college is so beneficial and also why and how women can strengthen their impact in different ways;
    • AAUW of St. George is hosting an event titled, “Swimming Up Steam: What’s it Like to Be Female and Living in Utah” on April 12 from 5:30-7:30pm.

Attendees who will benefit most include candidates and campaign managers, staff, and volunteers. More information and registration can be found here.
  • Edward Elgar Publishing has just released a soft cover of Dr. Madsen's global 2017 edited book, Handbook of Research on Gender and Leadership (more reasonably priced now). For those interested in scholarly work, it is a “gold mine” in terms of the latest research on women and leadership (27 chapters from author groups around the world).
