Show Notes

A Bolder Way Forward is a statewide movement that is bringing together businesses, organizations, and individuals who are either already doing related work around women and girls or are ready to get engaged and lean into the work. If we are serious about ensuring that Utah women, girls, and their families better thrive, we need to create positive change much faster. A Bolder Way Forward leaders are working together to accomplish bold goals in 18 critical areas that require societal change, and one of these is Political Representation, Boards and Commissions, & Civic Engagement/Advocacy. Dr. Susan Madsen, Founding Director of the UWLP, is joined by the leaders who are heading up the area—called spokes in the Wheel of Change— of Political Representation, Boards and Commissions, & Civic Engagement/Advocacy. First, Becki Wright, Founder & CEO of Proximity and a board member of Utah Women Run; Nina Barnes, a board member of Utah Women Run and The Policy Project; and Luna Banuri, founding board member and executive director of the Utah Muslim Civic League.
