Often informal social networks are important to women in their career advancement. One of these informal business networks is golf. As such, we are a non-profit sponsor of an annual golf tournament in St. George.

“I’ve now had the privilege of participating in both the Political Development Series and the Career Development Series. I’m so grateful for what WLI stands for and how it is collectively and individually empowering women in Utah. I know WLI is a force for good for all those who participate, whether as speakers or students or male or female. I think a lot of this positive impact comes from the way you lead WLI. It is clear to me that it is a labor of love. I think of the hundreds of women who are positively impacted each year, and who, like me, felt welcome and supported. Women are incredible but too many face feelings of self doubt and external barriers to success. Thank you for what WLI is doing to correct that.
-Nicole Omer, WLI Alumni
