Co-Founder of Utah’s 40 Over 40 joined us today to talk about representation for women.

40 Over 40 believes that representation matters. In age, race, skill, experience, opinion and thought. The purpose of this group is to use that representation to highlight women in their 40s and beyond. They are inspired by women who take chances, change lives and make an impact. They are working to create a community of women over 40, celebrated for their accomplishments and success stories. 

1 in 4 Americans is a woman over 40. 25% of the country and 83 million people. This means that 25% of the country is being underrepresented and under-promoted. In Utah, women earn 30% less than men. That is one of the largest gender wage gaps in the nation.

Below is the full list of this years winners of Utah 40 Over 40.
