Childcare Symposium: Practices, Policies, and Strategies to Move Utah Forward

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Utah families and a growing number of employers often name access to high-quality, affordable childcare as a key barrier to prosperity in our state, especially for low- and moderate-income families. The questions then become: How can we increase childcare access and affordability in Utah so our families and workplaces can thrive? Why is this topic becoming more and more important for employers today? What childcare resources can employers provide to their workers? What public policies can help families and employers in Utah regarding childcare? What are policy challenges and opportunities? What are general challenges, strategies, and solutions for Utah families regarding childcare? Overall, this two-hour online symposium will focus on practices, policies, and strategies that can move Utah forward.

Salary Negotiation for Women: The Latest Research & Cutting-Edge Best Practices

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Women face unique challenges when it comes to negotiating. Research continues to confirm that the gender wage gap persists even when taking into consideration job level, differences in preferences, and family leave. Gender differences in salary negotiations could be one of several determinants of perpetual gender differences in labor market outcomes. Yet, this gap is multi-dimensional and complex.

Three internationally known scholars will share their research on salary negotiation for women as it relates to gender differences and challenges. They will also offer research-based skills, tools, and strategies that will not only assist women in negotiating more effectively but will also benefit managers and leaders who are focused on addressing Utah’s vast talent shortage by recruiting and retaining more women employees.

Relaunching Your Career: Tools & Strategies for Women Returning to the Workforce

Panel Discussion/Presentation

Many Utah women take career breaks for various reasons, including raising children, assisting with elder care, and managing other responsibilities. Eventually, many women want to relaunch their careers, whether it is full-time, part-time, or even contract work. Yet, relaunching is intimidating for so many women. Often, we feel that we are not prepared for professional work after being at home and outdated in terms of skills, competencies, and professional networks. Don’t lose hope because you are more prepared than you think!

This engaging panel of experts and launchers will provide experiences, insights, tools, tips, and strategies for women returning to the workforce—whether you are thinking about it or already have a “job” but want a “career.” Join us as we discuss how to be successful in relaunching your career!
