Event description

Description

We are proud to introduce “She Talks Utah,” an annual event held each Fall as part of the Utah Women’s Leadership Speaker & Dialogue Series. Each “She Talks Utah” event will feature a number of engaged, accomplished, and entertaining Utah women who will share their personal stories, ideas, and passions surrounding a specific subject. For this 2017 event, we have invite five fabulous Utah women from various backgrounds and sectors to speak briefly about how each has found both her unique voice and also the courage to use it in different ways to be a force for good. Come and learn from women who lead in a public sphere and their own ways. As you listen, think of ways you can also influence and lead both informally and formally in unique and meaningful ways as well. The speeches will be filmed, so prepare to be a lively audience! For the last 30 minutes, attendees will pick up some light refreshments and find dialogue groups to discuss the topics presented. Women (10 years and older) are welcome to attend (men who support them can come too)! Come and listen, learn, laugh, eat, and dialogue!
