Global Justice Lecture
Utah has had to weather many breeches of ethics, most recently concerning the Salt Lake County recorder's office. Now you can hear an expert, Nobel Laureate Amartya Sen, speak about the importance of ethics and how it plays out on policies and in our daily lives in "Ethics and Economics of Global Justice." Libby Gardner Hall, 1375 Presidents Circle, University of Utah, 801-581-7676, Friday, April 22, free and open to public,

Equestrian Meeting
Don't let progress destroy some of the horse, livestock and youth programs that have been offered at the Salt Lake County Equestrian Center. If you care what happens to the facility, you should attend a Salt Lake County Town Hall Meeting to evaluate the programs. Four options are being considered: the status quo, reducing the park size, expanding the use and re-purposing into a regional park. Indoor Arena, Salt Lake County Equestrian Park and Events Center, 11400 S. 2200 West, South Jordan, 385-468-4832, Monday, April 25, 6:30 p.m., open to public,

Some of Utah's most influential women will be discussing and inspiring women to reach higher in their careers. This will be a chance to network, too, at the 2016 Eccles Executive Education Women's Symposium. 7th floor of the Spencer Fox Eccles Business Building, University of Utah, 1655 Campus Center Drive, 801-587-7273, Thursday, April 28, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., $149/inclusive,

Human Rights Series
Remember The Color Purple—the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and subsequently an award-winning movie? Author and poet Alice Walker and acclaimed filmmaker Pratibha Parmar will participate in a series of events as part of the Barbara L. and Norman C. Tanner Center for Nonviolent Human Rights Advocacy's "Artists as Advocates: Women's Rights and Human Rights" series at the University of Utah.
