I have a number of Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) announcements for July:

First, we are pleased to announce the release of a new research snapshot titled “The Status of Utah American Indian Women” (with Dr. Tasha Toy and Marin Christensen), along with one we released a few weeks ago titled “The Status of Utah Hispanic or Latina Women” (with Dr. Jessica C. Hill and Marin Christensen). See the acknowledgements for the many other people who advised, reviewed, and assisted with these reports. In addition, the UWLP team held 11 community conversations with women of color around the state on their experiences, and a summary of these discussions are included in a series of short reports.
