Check out some of Utah’s talented young women and our remote work ranking, mourn with Colorado and check out some COVID news. Winners of the #SheStartedIt competition meet with LG Henderson
As part of #WomensHistoryMonth we displayed winning artwork from @BetterDays2020 "She Started It" student competition. These students drew pictures & wrote essays about influential women in Utah and how they made an impact on their lives. It was so fun to meet them today! #utpol pic.twitter.com/a3RSi7SGcU
