The Experiences of Black Women in Utah: Research & Thoughts
In the spring of 2022, the Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP) convened 11 community conversations with women of color in Utah, specifically, two groups per race/ethnicity category in various areas of the state (Black, Latina, Asian, Pacific Islander, and Indigenous), plus one group of New American women (refugees and immigrants) representing various countries of origin. The purpose of these groups was twofold: (1) to supplement a series of data snapshots of each race/ethnicity category with personalized experiences that represent the various cultures and ethnicities embedded within the US Census categories, and (2) to foster ongoing relationships with these communities to ensure their voices are heard, especially regarding the issues that specifically affect them as women of color.
