Real Women Run returns to northern Utah

All are welcome at Real Women Run Northern Utah on Wednesday, November 28, 2018 from 6:00 to 8:00 PM at the Cache County Historic Courthouse (199 Main St, Logan, UT 84321). 

This evening will feature conversation and networking with local and state leaders about the importance of women in elected office and community leadership positions, and how to take the next steps to get involved.

“We need more women’s voices in government. This Real Women Run event is an opportunity for women in our community to become better leaders and learn more about participating in the political process at the local level. I like the fact that it’s non-partisan. Women running for office win at the same levels as men, but research shows they often need encouragement to run. Real Women Run can help provide tools, networking and shared experiences to facilitate that.” 
– Holly Daines, Logan City Mayor

The event will feature local leaders who are involved in politics and public service, including Mayor Daines and Cache County Council Member Barbara Tidwell. A panel discussion moderated by Brigham City Council Member Ruth Jensen will include: Logan City Councilwoman Amy Anderson, Former Utah House Candidate Karina Andelin Brown, Former School Board Candidate Shellie Giddings, Former Cache County Council Candidate Jennifer Roark, and Cache County Council Member Gina Worthen.

Former Utah State Representative Sophia DiCaro will give the keynote address. Sophia’s professional career began in various roles at the Governor’s Office of Planning and Budget. After thirteen years of service under four gubernatorial administrations in senior roles, she served a term in the Utah State House of Representatives, representing northern West Valley City in the Utah State Legislature.
