Women business owners in Utah invited to take part in statewide survey

Salt Lake City — The Utah Women & Leadership Project (UWLP), in partnership with the Women’s Business Center of Utah (WBCUtah), is conducting a study on women-owned businesses within Utah. Utah women age 18 or older who own businesses are encouraged to participate.

The purpose of this research is to understand the status of women-owned businesses in Utah and the experiences of women who own these businesses. Women who live within the state of Utah and own a business are invited to participate in the research survey.

Women who take part in this study will be asked to complete a survey, which is expected to take between 20-30 minutes. It is anticipated that at least 1,000 people will participate in this research study. Participation in this study is voluntary, and someone may withdraw their participation at any time, for any reason.

The survey will help Utah business, government, political, nonprofit, and other types of entities, leaders, and decision-makers better understand the status of women-owned businesses in the state and women’s experiences starting and operating their businesses. This information can assist state leaders, women’s support centers, and others design future policies, resources, support, and strategic responses that could better help women start and grow businesses within Utah.
