IACP Working for You: Forging Ahead: IACP’s Leadership Course for Women in Law Enforcement

Women in law enforcement face a myriad of challenges and barriers as they rise in the ranks. When serving in a male-dominated profession such as law enforcement, women often find tremendous value in the support and encouragement they receive from women who have experienced or are currently experiencing similar challenges. Through the IACP Women’s Leadership Institute (WLI), women and men, sworn and civilian, collectively participate in an academically rigorous one-week course that is rooted in leadership theories and concepts with a focus on the distinct challenges faced by women in law enforcement.
