The American Probation and Parole Association (APPA) is pleased to announce a special, one-day Women’s Symposium entitled “Leading with Courage & Strength: Finding Your Voice” to take place on Saturday, August 27, 2022 during APPA's 47th Annual Training Institute. The goal of the Women’s Symposium is to bring together women in the community corrections field from all stages of life to promote strength and courage and inspire them to find their voice as leaders within their organizations.
During the one-day event, participants will attend interactive, action-oriented workshops with national experts and leading practitioners on these topics:
“Women make up a growing percentage of the community corrections workforce across the world, and APPA is committed to ensuring that women have a voice as leaders,” said Veronica Cunningham, APPA executive director and CEO. “We want participants to learn how to tap into their unique strengths and leverage them to have a voice in their organizations.”
