TRUTH ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE
So you don't think climate change is a thing and that "real" scientists know the truth? Come hear a real scientist as she speaks to the truth and exposes the lies behind the dialogue. Brenda Ekwurzel, an internationally renowned seniorclimate scientist from the Union of Concerned Scientists in Washington, D.C., does her best to educate you on the crisis we face at Climate Change: The Reality, The Solutions. It's not all doom and gloom. She presents achievable solutions, as well. No, just because it's snowing doesn't mean that Earth isn't warming. Join her to find out more in this era of #fakenews. The presentation is followed with a Q&A. Main Library, 210 E. 400 South, Thursday, March 21, 3:15 p.m., free/reserve seating via firstname.lastname@example.org,bit.ly/2CiAakM.
GENDER WAGE GAP
It looks like many women think, yeah, the feminists of yesteryear solved all our problems and there's no inequality now. Wrong. Join a panel of experts—professors and a Utah state senator—to hear about the Gender Wage Gap: (In)Equality in Utah. If you're a woman, don't you want to make the same money as a man in your position? The most recent U.S. Census data put Utah at the bottom—tied with Louisiana—for the widest wage gap in the nation. That means a woman earns 70 cents for every dollar a man makes. What can you do about it? It could be your choice. Hinckley Caucus Room (Gardner Commons) 260 S. Central Campus Drive, Ste. 2018, 801-581-8501, Monday, March 25, noon-1 p.m., free, bit.ly/2Hmh3KH.
