Maya Angelou Honorary SHERO

Who's WOO

(Women Overcoming Obstacles) Event

Although Maya Angelou will not be able to join us due to health reasons, we are honoring her as our SHERO for the month and having a Who's WOO (Women Overcoming Obstacles) event instead. These speakers will inspire you, empower you and motivate you.

We are bringing in four very powerful speakers who have overcome tremendous obstacles in their lives.  Please plan on attending after work. We are having a reception at 5:30pm in the foyer with the University of Utah Women's MBA group and the main event will be in the auditorium. 

Speaker Lineup:

Bridget Cook, Bestselling Author, Speaking on - “High Profile Courage”

Rene' Johnson, The Power Zone Coach and Author, Speaking on - "Championing Domestic Violence"

Becky Swanson, Mrs. Wasatch Front, Speaking on - “Dealing with the Tragic Loss of A Child”


HOT OFF THE PRESS - We have just confirmed Rebecca Musser, a former polygamist wife who dedicated the past 6 years to testify against the FLDS in Utah, Arizona and Texas. She was wife #19 of Rulon Jeffs' 65 wives and escaped the FLDS in 2002. She is very courageous and stands for the rights of women and children.

With this lineup of powerful national speakers for free, you don't want to miss this inspiring night.

We need you to register and get your friends to register too, so we know how many to plan for.

Please help us get the word out! Various organizations will be filming the presentation. As part of the video capture, we may include some momentary footage with you included. Please let us know if you would prefer not to be included in the filmed footage. Thank you for accommodating us.

Recognizing Women that have done extraordinary things, and those things have gone on to make a difference in the lives of others.

Our Mission is to seek out SHEROs and recognize them for their extraordinary efforts. We want to be a place where role models are identified and we want to build a better tomorrow for the women of today.

The definition of SHERO has not been updated in the dictionary. Right now it states that a SHERO is a man or woman that has an influence on the rights of women, specifically towards the Women's Liberation Movement.

That is about to change!!
