WWICJJ Conference 2023

The Women Working in Corrections and Juvenile Justice (WWICJJ) conference is coming to the beautiful West Coast in October of 2023. The conference will be hosted by the Oregon Department of Corrections (DOC) in Portland, Oregon! DOC is pleased to host the 2023 conference, we are looking forward to a fun, informative, and successful event. Please check back here periodically for information on the 2023 WWICJJ conference. 

The first WWICJJ national conference was in 1985 and is held every odd-numbered year in a different state. The theme of the 2023 conference is “Stronger Together.” Workshops will be held to address organizational transformation and speakers will provide training to help women transcend gender-related occupational barriers and become effective leaders. We are expecting a large, enthusiastic crowd of corrections and juvenile justice professionals from across the United States to attend and share in the WWICJJ experience.

Currently, we are looking for breakout speakers for this exciting conference. All speakers who are interested in being considered must complete the application no later than February 1, 2023.

We are looking for speakers for a variety of relevant topics on corrections and juvenile justice topics. Some relevant topics may include leadership, medical, mental health, safety and security, promising practices and creative strategies in corrections and juvenile justice, lessons learned, issues specific to women in corrections and juvenile justice, wellness, and much more!
