Women’s Week 2022 at the University of Utah will take place March 14-18. The theme for this year is “Shift. Strive. Thrive.”

Grappling with remote work or essential conditions; managing extra duties at home; combining children, chores, and school; coping with isolation; and fighting racial injustice have resulted in an overall lack of self-care, manifesting in mental and physical health concerns we have all dealt with over the last two years. We need a space to find help, heal and grow. This year’s Women’s Week will validate and acknowledge the struggles we have been experiencing over the past two years and explore the ways we are shifting, striving and thriving to become stronger as we emerge to a new future.
