Women in the Economy Commission has established the following guiding principles for elevate the status of women in Utah:
- Individual Women - We value each Utah woman as a contributor to the Utah culture and economy. We support and encourage women to effectively meet their needs and celebrate their accomplishments.
- Families - We respect women as caregivers and influencers of families and communities. We seek to protect the interests of women as they optimize their skillsets, paid and unpaid, to provide for their families.
- Education - We believe that education empowers women to build confidence and create opportunities. We champion equal opportunities for girls and women to learn about, consider, access, and complete higher education.
- Workplace - We value women in the workplace as contributors, leaders and visionaries. We support women in discovering and making informed career choices. We champion the development, recognition and advancement of women in the workplace and encourage work-life balance.
The commission accomplishes its purpose by specifically impacting policy, sharing information & encourage influencers in our state.
