New study tracks number of women in front-line, cabinet-level positions in Utah government. Labeled Fest for Mental Health preview. GlobalLeaders Scholarship Fund now taking applications. Community Roundtable tackles what it means to be an American given today's chaotic times.

Tonight’s lineup:

Dr. Susan Madsen of the Utah Women & Leadership Project at Utah State University, which earlier today released a groundbreaking study around the number of Utah women in leadership positions at the state level of government. The study includes an analysis of gender representation across 3,850 leadership positions within 53 Utah state agencies.  

  • Study finds that just 39.3% of supervisory, managerial, and leadership positions in the State of Utah government are held by women. The problem is not simply the overall numbers of women in the public sector workforce, but rather how those numbers are spread across the different levels of leadership: With women comprising 41.2% of front-line leadership positions but just 27.1% of cabinet-level roles.

Brian Higgins, Executive Creative Director at Mental Healthy Utah, on Labeled Fest.
