Reframing the Conversation: Women Who Run

March 10 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm MST

Women take on important leadership roles in government, private industry, and the public sector. Notable figures such as “the Squad,” organizations like Real Women Who Run, and even popular references to the “pink wave” speak to the need to learn from and discuss women who run for public office. Across the political spectrum, 2020 marked yet another historic moment for more women running for office than any previous election. Join our panelists as they reflect on what inspired them to run for office, the challenges, and successes they experienced in government, and how and why more women should run for office in Utah.

Moderator: Erika George

Panelists

  • Councilwoman Aimee Winder Newton
  • Chairperson Candace Bear
  • Representative Angela Romero
  • Cindie Quintana, CEO of CQ Public Relations and 2020 Candidate for House District 32

Reframing the Conversation brings together experts from across campus and the community to spark important conversations around racism, othering, and safety. With these conversations, we are striving to counteract the growing culture of othering with a culture of belonging.

While we continue to identify and remove barriers and bias incidents targeting our campus community, persistent strides towards an institution where every member is given the opportunity to be educated on equity, diversity, and inclusion efforts will remain at the forefront of our work.

Women’s Week is an annual, weeklong event focused on the issues and challenges faced by those who identify as female or women. Topics are relevant to today’s socioeconomic and political climate, intersectionality and cultural movements. Women’s Week is planned by a volunteer committee of students, faculty, and staff collaborating across the university.

This year’s theme is “Inspiring a Movement.” Events will reflect on the history of women’s political leadership, celebrate women’s contributions to our communities, honor those who have come before us, endeavor to create community and belonging, and facilitate a collective call to action to make the changes that are needed to enact an equitable future.
