May Utah Women and Leadership Announcements

This is a little late, but we would like to share a number of announcements and events, courtesy of the Utah Women and Leadership Project and Dr. Susan Madsen. Check out all of the upcoming events of women’s groups in the state on the community calendar here.

  • The UWLP 4-year update of the brief titled “The Status of Women Leaders in Utah Business: A 2018 Update” is now available. 
  • Get a sneak peek of the Better Days 2020 Utah Women’s History Education Curriculum: a creative and unique Utah women’s history education curriculum for K-12 students (password: bd2020) currently being piloted by Jordan School District and soon to be publicly launched statewide (and nationwide). For more information on their mission and projects go to www.betterdays2020.org.
  • There is a community gathering with UWLP in Vernal, Utah on May 15th (6:30-8:00pm) titled, Strengthen Your Impact as Girls & Women. There will be a panel with Sonja Norton (Former Mayor of Vernal), Ronee K. Wopsock (Education Director, Ute Tribe), Becky Williams (Associate Professor of Biology), and Julie May (Owner, Shine Events). 
  • Has your organization (company, non-profit, school/school district, agency, etc.) formally taken the ElevateHER Challenge through the Women’s Leadership Institute yet? Here is the link to the list of the over 150 organizations that are participating. With the Challenge, an organization pledges to elevate the stature of women’s leadership and may adapt its own policies within its unique structure to meet the commitments; recommendations are online. In addition, if you are interested in connecting with a women’s group in Utah, here is a comprehensive list.
