Webinar: Decriminalizing Difference: Exploring Human-centric Communication to Deconstruct Racial and Ethnic Bias

January 11, 2022 1:00pm Eastern

Webinar Faculty: Nikki Roberts

About the Webinar:

Language is evolving with respect to gender, but courtrooms and offices don’t always reflect such change.

This virtual workshop invites participation from individuals with experience and/or interest in (1) the application of gender sensitive communication to inform client relations, program design and policy writing; and (2) maintaining an openness for the multiplicity of feminisms in and out the courtroom. A combination of interactive presentation, video, exercises, facilitated discussion and sharing of resources will provide the National Association for Public Defense with recommendations specific to gender inclusive communication to take forward to varying justice-centered outlets; and will provide participants with language, concepts, and tools to apply to their own work.

NAPD doesn't apply for CLE or track attendance to provide certifications for our live webinars, conferences and online courses. This helps us keep the price as low as possible and avoids the disruption of the flow of the training required by many states to verify attendance.
We are able to provide CLE for dozens of recorded sessions from previous training for NAPD members in most states.   These sessions are only $10 per credit hour.   For more details, log in with your NAPD credentials at this link.
