March 2024 Newsletter


Good morning. Happy Women’s History Month! I have a number of Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) announcements for March:

First, we are pleased to announce the release of three new research summaries: Poverty & Homelessness, Workforce Development, and Home & Family. In partnership with A Bolder Way Forward (BWF) leaders, the UWLP conducted a fall statewide survey to establish a baseline of public perceptions related to the awareness, understanding, and attitudes around challenges that Utah women and girls face. To learn more about the study, review this document (Background & Methods) and check out the others already published.

Second, in celebration of Women’s History Month, we have an online event titled, “Utah Women in Society – A Living Room Conversation” coming up (RSVP online) on March 21 from 12:00-1:15pm. We are partnering with Living Room Conversations, and it is a unique event. You’ll be in small group (4-6 people) conversations for much of this with a guided plan and intriguing questions. It will be in a Zoom “meeting” format, and you’ll want to have your cameras on for this experience. We are excited about these discussions!

Third, we have a few UWLP resources to highlight this month:

Fourth, we wanted to make you aware of our page that lists programs specifically for girls and young women (K-12). This list includes camps for girls during the summer. Let us know if you are aware of others not on our list!

Fifth, here are some of our partners’ upcoming events (check out our community calendar for all events in Utah for girls and women):

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