NAPD - 2021 Women’s Conference


Time: September 23-25, 2021
Location: Online

This September, we once again gather for advocacy, encouragement, empowerment, training workshops, development, networking, and renewal.

This September, we gather for community. We gather to support.

This powerful 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.

This September, we gather for sisterhood.

This gathering is for all female/feminine-identifying individuals, in all job titles, and practitioners who work or support public defense: attorneys, paralegals, core staff, social workers, trainers, policy advocates, and more. We also encourage and invite law students to join us. NAPD is committed to creating an event in a safe space that brings inspiration and transformation to persons of all gender identities, and for this event, we will specifically amplify female-identifying voices in public defense*.

New focus areas this year:

  • Professional Growth & Leadership - sessions that help participants develop their leadership voice or facilitating professional/personal growth
  • Well-Being and Self-Care - sessions that prioritize wellness and self care within the public defense community
  • Representing Women, Families, Children - sessions that center around the circumstances, challenges, and celebrations of representing women, families and children
  • Intersectionality and Connecting Our Stories - sessions amplifying when our voices are marginalized in the communities we serve
  • Women and Racial Justice - sessions centering around the pursuit of racial justice and equality
