Utah Women & Leadership Project


Utah Valley University is pleased to host the statewide Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP), founded by Dr. Susan R. Madsen in 2013. The core mission of the Project is to strengthen the impact of Utah girls and women through informing, engaging, and developing their voices, confidence, influence, and leadership. We do this through 1) conducting and publishing research and policy briefs, snapshots, and reports; 2) providing conferences, workshops, seminars, and other gatherings to help prepare and advance women for leadership; 3) gathering and creating related resources; 4) assisting Utah women in finding women's groups, networks, and associations throughout the state; and 5) partnering and collaborating with other Utah women’s organizations, networks, and groups. This Project is supported internally at UVU by the Woodbury School of BusinessWomen's Success Center, and the President's Office. Also see details about generous sponsors and partners, UWLP staff, and UWLP ambassadors.
