Women in Criminal Justice


2022 marked 25 years of bringing Criminal Justice colleagues together to learn, share, support and network as part of the Women in Criminal Justice Conference.

During the last two-and-a-half decades, we have watched as many chose to enter the field; expand their experiences nationally and internationally; work in academia; commit to a career on the front lines and mentor newcomers; advance into leadership positions; or, retire as dedicated professionals, all the while balancing full lives outside of work.

As we acknowledge this collective work, we must thank those who came before us: being the first in a field; cracking and breaking the glass ceilings and walls; taking career risks; earning advanced degrees;
never backing down and clearing a path for those who would follow.

Let us all strive to widen that path and eliminate ceilings for the women who will replace us.

The date for the 2023 conference will be announced soon.
