Come celebrate Women's History Month with the Business Women's Forum. Kristen, from Better Days 2020, will share some history about Utah's women, including the fight for women's suffrage and Utah women's contributions to politics, business, and our community. We will discuss how sharing these stories can inspire us to be more active and engaged in our own sphere of influence today.
BETTER DAYS 2020:
Better Days believes that by popularizing our history in creative and communal ways, we open doors to having conversations about the future of Utah women. As we draw attention to our storied past, we can be a positive catalyst for conversation and remembrance, and give energy to Utah's women today to be more engaged participants in our corporate and political communities.
