Inspire In Utah is an initiative that supports women entrepreneurs and women in the workplace at every level. It also supports women who want to relaunch careers through Return Utah and similar programs.
Inspire In Utah is an effort by Go Utah and other partners to help connect women with business resources, funding, mentorship opportunities, learning and professional development opportunities, networking events, and other organizations who can help them succeed. These partners include the Utah Office of Multicultural Affairs, The Utah Women & Leadership Project at Utah State University, and the Women’s Business Center of Utah.
There are organizations across the state who are doing so much work to help advance women in so many ways. The Inspire In Utah campaign is adding the voice of the Governor’s office to those groups and seeks to help connect women to partner organizations.
The website (inutah.org/inspire) includes resources to help women succeed in business. Resources for networking, training, funding, and employment are included on the site.
The campaign seeks to help inspire 1,000 new women-owned businesses by creating targeted messages for women returning to the workforce, women of color, veterans, LGBTQ+ community members, immigrants, and refugees.
There are resources for women entrepreneurs, childcare solutions and ideas for employers, and information to help narrow the gender pay gap.
