We are excited to do a feature on each of the Changemaker honorees for the our United for Change event HAPPENING TODAY!
What is a Changemaker?
Changemakers work with others to achieve results that can’t be achieved alone. Being a Changemaker requires passion, long-term commitment, generosity, hands-on involvement, and a shift from ideas to actions. The 2016 Changemaker Awards for Corporate and Civic Leadership are awarded to business and civic leaders or organizations that have worked with others to create measurable change in our community.
We hope you will join us in celebration of their
contributions at this fun and inspiring event!
Today, we are honored to recognize the
Salt Lake Chamber as a 2016 Changemaker!
Since 2011, the Salt Lake Chamber has worked tirelessly to organize the business community as a voice for education with the Utah Legislature. Through its support of Prosperity2020 and EducationFirst, the Chamber has provided critical leadership resulting in increased resources for Utah’s public and higher education system. Working with Alan Hall and Prosperity2020, the Chamber helped initiate the Roy Cone project, a public-private partnership in Weber School District similar to United Way of Salt Lake’s Promise Partnerships, to achieve improved outcomes for every student in the Roy High School feeder pattern. Through its leadership and collaboration, the Salt Lake Chamber continues to be a powerful voice for lasting change.
The Salt Lake Chamber has demonstrated outstanding commitment to
bettering our education system and it is with great admiration
that we honor them as a 2016 Changemaker.
