Building Utah’s Leadership Pipeline.
Investing in Women
Our primary focus is helping organizations understand and embrace the value of gender diversity; however, we also saw that as organizations started creating change, they needed women with the skills, mindset, and experience to move up the leadership pipeline. As an Institute, we have created three development programs to build that pipeline in business and politics.
Rising leader Series
This new program starts March 2023 and is aimed at helping women confidently step up as leaders and build leadership pipelines.
Career Development Series
Our annual Career Development Series - Wasatch Front & Rural Expansion - helps women develop their leadership and better lead their teams.
Political Development Series
Our nonpartisan Political Development Series prepares and develops future female political candidates for local and state-wide offices.
“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 think of the hundreds of women who are positively impacted each year, and who, like me, felt welcome and supported.
What Do We Teach?
All our programs are different, however, they all focus on being supportive, positive environments where women can come together to create change.
We teach the important skills of leadership, value-driven decision-making, giving and receiving feedback, negotiation. We also teach skills that address work/life balance, navigating being the “only” in the room, recognizing and engaging with internal social networks, and finding mentors.
