About the Presenters:
Patricia W. Jones, CEO Women's Leadership Institute
The mission of the Women’s Leadership Institute is to elevate the stature of female leadership in the state of Utah. The organization was formed in January, 2015 through the visionary efforts of key business leaders to address Utah’s deficiencies in the presence of women at top levels of corporate and political leadership. Jones was tapped as CEO because of her background and expertise in the business and political worlds as well as her ability to engage, collaborate and lead.
As co-founder and former President of Dan Jones & Associates, a successful public opinion and market research firm for 35 years, Jones helped lead and manage the company while serving on numerous community and company boards. Jones is an experienced and highly-regarded researcher, specializing in qualitative research, having conducted hundreds of focus groups throughout the country for a variety of industries since 1980.
Senator Jones served in the Utah Legislature for 14 years, serving in leadership positions 12 of those years. She was a member of the Utah House of Representatives from 2000-2006 and was elected to the Utah Senate in 2006-2014, serving eight years there, including serving as the first female leader in either party and in either House. While in the Utah Legislature, Jones was a member of various committees, including Public Education, Higher Education, Health and Human Services, Judiciary, Economic Development, Law Enforcement, Government Operations and Executive Appropriations.
Orangetheory Fitness is a one-of-a-kind, group personal training program that the New York Times called the "Best 1-Hour Workout in the Country". Backed by the science of excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), Orangetheory's heart-rate-monitored training is designed to maintain a target zone that stimulates metabolism and increases energy. Led by certified personal trainers, participants use a variety of equipment including treadmills, rowing machines, TRX Suspension Training and free weights, burning up to 1,000 calories per session. The result is the Orange Effect- more energy, visible toning and extra calorie burn for up to 36 hours post-workout.
There is a pay lot at the venue. There is also street parking out front or parking at the America Towers underground lot, which is also a pay lot. To get into that there is an entrance either on Broadway (300s) right in the middle of West Temple and Main Street, or there is an entrance to it on West Temple and in between 300 south and 200 south, just north of the Hilton.
