The Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) has a number of announcements for February:
First, our next Utah Women’s Leadership Speaker & Dialogue Series free event is titled, “Raising Girls to Become Leaders: Competence, Confidence, & Courage.” It will be held on Tuesday, March 26, 2019 (6:30-8:30pm) at UVU (live streaming available too). I will first present some research data on the topic, and then I’ll moderate a panel of women who have raised daughters and worked with young women in this area: Abby Cox (Wife of Lt. Governor Spencer Cox), Michelle Kaufusi (Mayor of Provo), Rebecca Chavez-Houck (Retired Utah State Representative), and Jeanette Bennett (Owner & Editor, Utah Valley Magazine). You can RSVP online here.
Second, we will be offering an in-depth training called “Unconscious Bias Workshop: From Awareness to Action” on February 22, 2019 from 7:30 AM – 11:00 AM at Thanksgiving Point, Lehi. It is $75, and you can register online here.
Third, we are pleased to announce the release of three new resources:
- WHAT CAN I DO?: What Mothers of Daughters Can Do to Strengthen the Impact of Utah Girls and Women
- INFOGRAPHIC: “Childcare: What Utahns Need to Know” (based on this 2018 snapshot)
- PODCAST: “The Gender Wage Gap in Utah” [iTunes or the UWLP blog]
Fourth, here are some of our partners’ upcoming events:
- February 8-9 (various times): 3rd Annual Ignite Your Influence Conference, Women’s Influence Center, St. George Chamber, St. George
- March 7 (6:00—8:00pm): Provo Girls Summit (ages 8-12; Provo Library), introduces girls to women in various professions and allows them time to dialogue (RSVP starting Feb. 7, Eventbrite; find on FB and IG @provogirlssummit)

Fifth, the 2019 legislative session is underway and YWCA Utah is on the hill advocating for policy change that impacts Utah women, girls, and families. Check out their online policy center for 2019 policy priorities and to sign up for their advocacy emails to stay in the loop on issues that matter to you!
Finally, check out one of my guest editorials in the Deseret News: What Fathers Say and Do Could Pave the Path to Success for Their Daughters. And, here is a LinkedIn article I wrote on a topic I find fascinating: The Impact of Fathering Daughters on Men’s Gender Equality Preferences. We also want to highlight a few videos from past events: Sexual Assault in Utah: Shining a Light on a Serious Issue and Keynote with Justice Christine Durham.
Enjoy the shortest month of the year!
