This summer, NAPD will convene a first of its kind event. The “I’m with Her: Women in Public Defense" Conference will be held June 29 – July 1, 2020 at the Blackburn Conference Center at Atlanta's John Marshall Law School. This gathering is for all women-identified, in all job titles, and practitioners who work or support public defense. This includes professionals; core staff; social workers; investigators, attorneys; law students; and allies.
Join over 200 women from across the nation as we gather for sisterhood, advocacy, encouragement, empowerment, training workshops, development, networking, and renewal. This power-packed two- and half-day conference is filled with workshops, self-care events, networking, celebration and much, much, more. We will acquire knowledge, obtain resources, and make connections that will elevate you to reach your professional and personal goals. NAPD is committed to creating an event in a safe space, that brings inspiration and transformation to all persons who identify as a woman in public defense.
Areas of Focus include:
Leadership Development - Facilitators Lori James-Townes, Melanie Foote and Andrea Lyon
Representing Women, Children and/or Families - Facilitators Shawna Geiger, La Mer Kyle-Griffiths and Breenna Bellinger
Well-Being and Self-Care - Facilitators Colette Tvedt and Caitlin Beckera
The agenda and speakers will be posted here in late March.
