UBA Women in Banking Conference

UBA’s 18th Annual Women in Banking Conference was held on April 13, 2023, in downtown Salt Lake City and online via Zoom. Nearly 200 attendees packed the Radisson ballroom, with another 50 joining online, to hear from a diverse lineup of speakers that included Gail Miller, American Ninja Warrior veteran Maggi Thorne, Coca-Cola Executive Lisa Nievaard, UT Department of Commerce Executive Director Margaret Busse, and more, in addition to a panel on LEADING.

As each woman shared her personal story, a few themes kept popping up, which can be applied in both professional and personal settings:

  • Show gratitude.
  • Step out of your comfort zone.
  • Embrace change.
  • We are stronger together.
  • Show up as your authentic self.

Attendees also brought in an overwhelming number of donations for this year’s featured charity, Safe Harbor, a nonprofit organization that provides shelter, supportive services and advocacy to survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Thank you for another great Women in Banking Conference, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
