The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to join us for our second Fall Women’s Leadership Forum on Understanding Sexism in Utah. Dr. Susan R. Madsen will moderate a panel comprised of Robbyn Scribner (Co-Founder & Director of Outreach, Tech-Moms), Deneiva Knight (CEO, EluVen Ventures), and Heather Sundahl (Marriage and Family Therapist, Progressive Paths Therapy).
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.
