We Are the Ones We've Been Waiting For: A Virtual Conference for Women in Public Defense

**Same Amazing Content: New Platform ~ We Just Couldn't Wait so we're going virtual!!**

 In this unparalleled time, the pressures on women have never been greater - and the importance of developing and advancing women has never been more critical. Join us as we gather for sisterhood, advocacy, encouragement, empowerment, training workshops, development, networking, and renewal. 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 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. 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.
