Utah Women & Leadership Project


Utah Valley University is pleased to host the Utah Women and Leadership Project (UWLP), which began in August 2013. The purpose of this project is to conduct research on different elements of women and leadership within Utah; assist Utah women in finding women's groups, networks, and associations throughout the state; link these groups together to enhance networking; and provide events and resources to help prepare and advance women for leadership within the state. This project is supported by the Woodbury School of Business, Women's Success Center, and the President's Office at Utah Valley University.
