Utah Community Builders

Utah Community Builders addresses our state’s most pressing challenges by providing a platform for the business community to engage on social issues. This effort will help strengthen partnerships between business leaders, service providers, academic experts and government agencies on social issues affecting Utah’s business community. 

Key Points:

  • Social Responsibility: The business community wants to address important social issues facing Utah, and an organized, focused approach will create lasting results
  • Facilitator: UCB operates as a facilitator, providing a clear process for the business community to engage on important social issues
  • Additive and Unique: UCB is not about duplicating efforts, but shining a light on existing efforts and those who are working to make progress on key issues so the business community can lend support
