The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our fall book club. Across two sessions, we will discuss Helgesen and Goldsmith’s book How Women Rise: Break the 12 Habits Holding You Back from Your Next Raise, Promotion, or Job.

Helgesen and Goldsmith “see that women face specific and often different roadblocks from men as they advance in the workplace.” They identify 12 habits that may hold women back, such as reluctance to claim their achievements, and building rather than leveraging relationships. Helgesen and Goldsmith weave together research findings and stories to describe each habit and explain how to build new strategies. Whether you are in the workforce or not, these book club discussions will challenge your thinking and help you consider expanding your positive influence in Utah.

The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our second Fall workshop of the academic year.

Many women and families have goals they want to achieve and would like their spending to reflect what matters most to them. So, how can we strategize how we spend so we can still achieve our goals even during times of high inflation? One way is to develop new spending and savings habits so we can maximize our income and minimize our expenses. Join Vincenza for this engaging workshop to learn about what practical strategies we can implement during times of high inflation to achieve all our financial goals.

Biases, Barriers, & Barricades for Utah Women: A Solutions-Based Workshop

Workshop/Training

Although some opportunities abound for women in Utah, there are still many challenges that keep women from contributing and thriving within various settings, including workplaces, educational institutions, politics, government, religious, and in the community at large. This in-person solutions-based workshop will focus on three complex issues in the state: decreasing sexism, increasing women in Utah politics, and stopping sexual assault and domestic violence.

This engaging workshop consists of short panels for each of these issues. After each panel, participants will join in a small groups discussion where ideas for solutions will be discussed and captured. Join us in person as we wrestle through ways to move the needle in terms of biases, barriers, and barricades for Utah women! This event has limited seating. Register to reserve your spot.
