WIBA Presents - Imagine Your Future: Creating Vision Boards

Workshop/Training

When we think about goals the path to reaching them may seem daunting. Or maybe it's not the path itself, but admitting to ourselves and others we have these goals. Ask yourself the question, "What would I do if I knew I couldn't fail?" Then start writing it down. Surely a goal not put to paper is just a dream. “Anything you can vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe, powerfully pray for and enthusiastically act upon will inevitably come to pass.” - Frank Edward Barrett. So join us in daring mighty, manifesting the vision of your life, and witnessing the power of a goal poster.

In-person registration is capped at the first 40 registrants.

More Than a Body: Building Body Image Resilience

Workshop/Training

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our second spring workshop of the academic year.

Our beauty-obsessed world perpetuates the idea that happiness, health, and the ability to be loved are dependent on how we look, but Lindsay and Lexie Kite offer an alternative vision. With insights drawn from their extensive body image research, Lindsay and Lexie—PhDs, founders of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined, and authors of the new book More Than a Body—lay out an action plan that arms you with the skills you need to reconnect with your whole self and free yourself from the constraints of self-objectification.

From media consumption to health and fitness to self-reflection and self-compassion, Lindsay and Lexie share powerful and practical advice that goes beyond “body positivity” to help develop body image resilience—all while cutting through the empty promises sold by media, advertisers, and the beauty and weight-loss industries. In the process, they show how facing your feelings of body shame or embarrassment can become a catalyst for personal growth.

When Women Don’t Speak: What It Takes for Women To be Heard

Panel Discussion/Presentation

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our third Spring Women’s Leadership Forum.

Drs. Jessica Preece and Christopher Karpowitz will present their groundbreaking research that shows what it takes for a woman to truly be heard. After years spent analyzing lab and real-life settings to determine what it takes for a woman to truly be perceived as competent and influential, they discovered that for women, having a seat at the table does not mean having a voice. They will discuss their research that has found that women are systematically seen as less authoritative and that their influence is systematically lower. And when they speak up, they are interrupted and not listened to as much.

So, what can be done? This engaging presentation will provide tips and strategies that can help all women understand what it takes for women to be heard and viewed as influential. Women of all ages (and those who influence them) are welcome to listen, learn, and ask questions in the chat! Register now!
