“As a young Latina, daughter of immigrants, second generation Utahn, and emerging professional, I found hope that women like me can find opportunities in Utah. I feel especially inspired and motivated by the content provided by the invited companies [and presenters], particularly “Defining Your Career” exercise with Instructure, learning about crisis management, and how to shift your paradigm with FranklinCovey. These were very powerful dialogues. I can’t wait to keep learning…My future already feels full and optimistic.
