Women's Leadership Certification Program – September 16-21, 2018

Ottawa, March 19, 2018 – The Canadian Police College (CPC) is proud to partner with the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) in the delivery of its Woman's Leadership program, the Women's Leadership Institute (WLI), which provides rigorous training sessions for women and men in law enforcement.

"The goal is for participants to leave the class both with a strategic plan for their careers and enhanced skills for achieving their goals," said IACP Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer Vincent Talucci. "The course is open to women and men, sworn and non-sworn personnel serving in supervisory positions, and to senior patrol officers aspiring to become supervisors."

Attendees are provided numerous opportunities for self-evaluation with a focus on the unique challenges facing women leaders in law enforcement. The program is highly interactive and features senior women instructors and mentors from United States and Canadian law enforcement agencies in an intensive learning environment.

"The CPC has a proud history of executive and supervisory development that focuses on the policing and law enforcement environment," said RCMP Assistant Commissioner Barbara Fleury, Executive Director of the CPC and Centre of Excellence in Police Leadership. "Our partnership with the IACP in delivering the WLI is part of our continued effort to support and develop future leaders in Canada."

The course is one week and starts September 16, 2018. It is to be delivered at the Novotel Ottawa where a block of rooms has been reserved. The CPC encourages early registration for those interested in attending.
