August 2020 Newsletter

Colleagues,

I hope summer is going well for all of you.

I have moved the Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) to the Jon M. Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University and partner closely with USU Extension. I hope you’ll take time to explore the new website as it has so much to offer in terms of research, resources, and events. We have a number of announcements for August:

First, we are pleased to announce the release of a new research and policy brief titled “The Status of Women Leaders in Government – State of Utah.” Dr. April Townsend was the lead researcher and co-author, and financial support for the study came from Utah Valley University. We found some interesting results.

Second, we have three free online events coming up in August and September (RSVP online). These are sponsored by the Huntsman School of Business and the Utah Education Network:

Third, we have a few resources to highlight this month: 1) Find new UWLP curriculum on this webpage for “Confidence From Head to Toe: Learn to Be Confident in the Way You Think, Move, and Communicate” (girls 10-17), designed by Bonnie Mortensen and sponsored by Wheeler Machinery Co.; 2) discover new content on our Toolkits by Topic page (PDF and slides); and 3) in partnership with The Center for Entrepreneurship at USU, we have added a new section to our videos page titled “Utah Women & Entrepreneurship.”

Fourth, here are some of our partners’ upcoming events:

Finally, check out the following editorials and articles from June and July:

Join us on the UWLP social media: LinkedInFacebookTwitterInstagram, and YouTube. See the community calendar as well. Email uwlp@usu.edu to let us know you want to receive these updates to your own inbox if you received a forwarded email.

Stay safe and healthy this month!

Susan
