About this event

Dates: November 9, November 30, & December 14 (must be able to attend all sessions)

Time: Noon-1:00pm

Late fall is the time of year to pull up a blanket, pour a cup of hot chocolate or tea, and dive into a book. The Utah Women & Leadership Project invites you to cozy up and dive in with us in our first inaugural learning circle focused on book readings. UWLP selects well-resourced, invigorating books that will help Utah women better understand fundamental issues that affect them, and host discussions that will foster community and inspire change. You must agree to attend all three sessions if you RSVP; you’ll have the same facilitator and group for each session.

The first book will be: Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men. According to one source, “Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development, to healthcare, to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems. And women pay tremendous costs for this bias, in time, money, and often with their lives. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, Caroline Criado Perez investigates the root cause of gender inequality and research in Invisible Women, diving into women’s lives at home, the workplace, the public square, the doctor’s office, and more. This is groundbreaking, unforgettable research that will change the way you look at the world.”

This is an awesome book, and the conversations will be enlightening. Sign up and plan to join us for this learning experience!

Sponsors: Jon M. Huntsman School of Business & Extension at Utah State University
