This is Lane Beattie of the Salt Lake Chamber with your Utah Business Report.
Happy National Women's History Month! And also happy International Women's Day today. Since 1911, the United States has celebrated Women's History Month—an annual month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.
This year's theme, "Celebrating Women of Character, Courage and Commitment," honors the extraordinary accomplishments, determination and tenacity of women. Against social convention and often legal restraints, women have created a legacy that expands the frontiers of possibility for generations to come.
Throughout the month of March, the Salt Lake Chamber, Women's Business Center and Downtown Alliance will highlight women making a difference in Utah business and the local community. These features will be located on the Chamber blog, which is located at slchamber.com. That's slchamber.com.
The Chamber started this National Women's History Month recognition program last year. The response was so tremendous that we decided to bring it back this year to recognize the great businesswomen of Utah.
