WLI’s Mission is to Elevate the Stature and
Talents of Women
We engage Utah business leaders to help them elevate the stature of women in business and board rooms through our annual ElevateHER™ Challenge.
“Accepting the ‘ElevateHER™ Challenge’ from the Women’s Leadership Institute has helped us shine an even brighter light on the issue of gender diversity within our organization. Our ongoing efforts to elevate the stature of women’s leadership have helped us strengthen our existing employee development programs and have connected us more deeply to our clients and communities.”Scott Anderson

Career Development Series
The competitive advantages the marketplace demands is someone more human, connected, and mature. Someone with passion and energy, capable of seeing things as they are and negotiating multiple priorities as she makes useful decisions without angst. Flexible in the face of change, resilient in the face of confusion. All of these attributes are choices, not talents, and all of them are available to you.Seth Godin
