WOMEN'S LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
Look around you. Listen to the news. Now is the time for women to rise up and take on the task of leadership. The 2019 Women's Leadership Summit, "Rise Up, Lift Up," is designed to set you on the path to success and help you help others get there. Breakout sessions "will provide participants knowledge, skills, and/or experiences that will offer a foundation for them to inform their definition of leadership," according to the event's Facebook page. Nona E. Richardson, who spent 40 years as a student-athlete, coach and administrator, keynotes the event. It's time to build your confidence for a future that puts women at the table with men. University of Utah Olpin Union, 200 Central Campus Drive, 801-581-7526, Tuesday, March 5, 1-6 p.m., $10 or students/free, bit.ly/2T65ywG.

CRIMINAL JUSTICE FORUM
Sometimes it seems like we lack a little understanding—and resources. At the Day of Empathy, you'll hear from people who've witnessed that problem first-hand as it relates to the justice system. Organizers of #JusticeReformNow bring in survivors of violent crime, those addicted to opioids or other drugs, the mentally ill and incarcerated individuals working to transform themselves and people living with a criminal record who are desperately seeking a second chance. You can interact with community members impacted by crime, public safety and violence. State Capitol, 350 N. State, Tuesday, March 5, 6:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2BPqj5U.

REPRODUCTIVE JUSTICE LECTURE
As we speak, legislatures and Congress are actively working on laws related to women and how they reproduce. Does that sound clinical? The question is whether this is a matter of morality, law, discrimination or freedom. In reality, it's all of those—and more. At The Constitution and Reproductive Justice in the Age of Trump, Reva Siegel of Yale Law School explores "questions of law and inequality and ... analyzes how courts interact with representative government and popular movements in interpreting the Constitution," the event's website says. The issue of abortion is high on the political agenda, but before you get too pumped up, you might want to understand the history behind the movement. S.J. Quinney College of Law, 383 S. University St., 801-585-3479, Wednesday, March 6, 5:30-7:30 p.m., free, bit.ly/2txrIJC.
