WOMEN'S SUCCESS PATH
There's been a lot of talk about the gender pay gap in the United States, but women across the world have a much harder path to professional acceptance. You will have two opportunities to hear from Shihana Alazzaz, one of the first women to practice law in Saudi Arabia. She will speak first on A Saudi Woman in the Corner Office and then at the Hinckley Institute on Working Women & Globalization. Alazzaz had to argue for her own inheritance rights at the age of 16, studied abroad to become a lawyer and eventually returned to her native Riyadh where she is head of transactions at the Public Investment Fund. Because of her experiences, Alazzaz is dedicated to mentoring other young women and ambitious young people in her field. Little America Hotel, 500 S. Main, 801-832-3273, Thursday, Sept. 7, 7-8:30 p.m., free with registration, bit.ly/2wmaPSQ; Hinckley Institute of Politics, 332 S. 1400 East, Room 102, 801-581-8501, Friday, Sept. 8, 12-1 p.m., free, bit.ly/2gmBQ4K

RECOVERY DAY RALLY
Do you know someone who has substance abuse issues? September has been designated Recovery Month by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration as a way of increasing awareness and understanding of substance use and mental health for the 23 million people in recovery across the nation. Walk with thousands of others in Salt Lake, the city that's been selected as the national hub site for the Faces and Voices of Recovery and SAMHSA Recovery Month Rally. You'll walk through the streets of Salt Lake from the Gallivan Center, where there will be live bands, dignitaries from the national recovery movement and more. Gallivan Plaza, 239 S. Main, 385-210-0320, Saturday, Sept. 9, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., free/register, recoveryday.org

FINANCIAL LITERACY FOR WOMEN OF COLOR
It's all about the tools you have. Financial tools have been a bit scarce for women, and particularly for those of color. It may be subtle, but racism is systemic in the realm of financial management. The Utah Women of Color Council in collaboration with Ally Bank's Wallet Wise Financial Literacy program is offering a two-part series to help these women create long-term financial goals through wise money management. Empowering Women of Color: Financial Literacy Part I (broaching the topics of budgeting, banking and investing) happens Saturday, Sept. 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the city library's Glendale Branch—1375 Concord St., 801-633-1997. The session is free, but registration is required at bit.ly/2vFRTgF
