Truth in Leadership: Finding Truth In A Post-Truth Political Environment

Tuesday, November 12, 2019, 5:30-7:30pm at Log Haven (6451 Millcreek Canyon Rd, Salt Lake City, UT 84109)

This year’s Real Women Run Fall Social will explore the concepts of identity and truth. In our current political culture debate is often driven by emotion and appears disconnected from policy details.
