March 2022 Newsletter

Colleagues,

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

First, we are pleased to announce the release of the last two research and policy briefs (“Sexist Comments & Responses: Stereotypes” and “Sexist Comments & Responses: Undervaluing Women”) in a 5-part series on sexist comments. Thanks to my co-researchers Robbyn Scribner and Dr. April Townsend for their fabulous work on these briefs. In addition, a few weeks ago we released a research snapshot titled, “The Economic Circumstances of Sexual Minority Women in Utah” (with Dr. Claudia Geist and Marin Christensen) and an accompanying infographic.

Second, we have three free events coming up (RSVP online):

  1. International Women’s Day Celebration: Utah Women Learn, Lead, & Lift (Mar. 8, 9:00-10:00am; Virtual; co-hosted by the One Utah Roadmap; the Lt. Gov will be the keynote speaker and other top women leaders in Utah will be speaking as well)
