Women's History Impact Team
Exploring women’s legacy of leadership in the past will make Utah a better place for women in the future. By the rigorous study, preservation, and education of the significant contributions women have made in Utah’s complex and interesting past, we empower the women of today to continue that tradition of making history. Equipping women with factual historical data enables them to enact critical change. As part of the “Culture” element on the Rim of the BWF Wheel of Change, this Impact Team works with each Spoke to provide women's history resources that supplement and support the work of the Spoke organizations.
