Women Empowered (WE) is an opportunity for women students from all walks of life to engage more powerfully within the university.
All women are welcome and we hope to create an environment where women can enjoy the community of other women and speak through their most powerful voice.
Several WE events are planned for Ogden and Davis campuses. Please take a look at the upcoming events page for WE dates and plan to join other women and have some fun. No registration is required – just show up.
