Utah Lt. Gov. Deidre Henderson recently issued a challenge for more women to get involved in their communities and in politics. Utah Governor Spencer Cox and Lt. Gov. Henderson have issued a 500 Day Roadmap, which includes a section on Equality and Opportunity. Today, we’ll talk about the Roadmap and issues such as the gender wage gap, women in public office, and opportunities for women in leadership in the private and public sectors.

Our guests will include Lt. Gov. Henderson and Susan Madsen, Inaugural Karen Haight Huntsman Endowed Professor of Leadership in the Huntsman School of Business at Utah State University and Founder and Director of the Utah Women & Leadership Project.
