The Female Force

The National Law Enforcement Memorial and Museum (NLEMM) and the National Organization of Women Law Enforcement Executives (NAWLEE) are working together to provide this live virtual discussion focusing on empowering women in law enforcement.

Women constitute less than 13% of total officers in this country—with an even smaller proportion of leadership positions—despite comprising over 50% of the total US population. Despite recent efforts to increase representation, the percentage of women in law enforcement has remained stagnant for the past few decades.

How do women contribute in ways that differ from their male colleagues? What strengths do women bring to the field? How do they impact the safety of officers and the communities they serve? These questions and others will be discussed during our live program, moderated by Kathy O’Toole. Additional participants will be announced soon.

Join us for a conversation that will continue to build from the stories and insights shared during our Breaking the Blue Ceiling event in December 2020.
