Darowski). Additionally, we released a research and policy brief a few weeks ago titled “Perceptions of Higher Education: Gender Differences in Utah Secondary School Students” (with Carlee Dynes and Dr. Emily S.

Fourth, the UWLP is partnering with the Governor’s Office of Economic Opportunity, the Governor’s One Utah Roadmap efforts, and the Women’s Business Center of Utah on the new “Inspire In Utah” campaign, which is an initiative to help support women entrepreneurs and women in the workplace at every level. As part of this campaign, “100 Companies Championing Women” focuses on recognizing and highlighting the stories of 100 Utah companies that offer family-friendly policies and practices, as well as women-specific initiatives known to impact the recruiting, hiring, retaining, and advancing of women employees, managers, and leaders. If you feel like your company is doing well on these things, please let your HR department know about this opportunity!

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

Finally, check out some key articles and media published this past month:
