Moving Mountains for Utah Women.

The mission of the Utah Women & Leadership Project is to strengthen the impact of Utah girls and women. We serve Utah and its residents by 1) producing relevant, trustworthy, and applicable research; 2) creating and gathering valuable resources; and 3) convening trainings and events that inform, inspire, and ignite growth and change for all Utahns.

Understanding Sexism in Utah
Sexism takes many forms, from blatant and aggressive to unintentional and subtle. Learning more about how it manifests can help each of us learn to respond in more productive ways whether we experienced it personally or are a bystander. Speaking up against sexism can be a powerful force for reducing gender inequity. By raising awareness of the widespread occurrence and damaging effects of sexist language, comments, beliefs, and behaviors, we can reduce the frequency of sexism in our workplaces, neighborhoods, communities, and the state.
