The Changing Face of Law Enforcement

Last year I read the first two pages of Jay Newton-Smalls book, Broad Influence: How Women Are Changing the Way America Works and I was hooked. A day and a half later I was smarter and wiser. I was particularly taken by her research around women in law enforcement.

As we have engaged on the issues around diversity and trust, understanding how vital they are to safe communities, we were motivated to dig deeper. There is an evident win here and we wanted to learn more. What has developed is a unique opportunity to meet amazing women who lead their communities, building one of our most important assets: Public Trust.

The Changing Face of Law Enforcement will be part of our GENERATION W discussion as we welcome four “Women in Blue” to our stage: Sheriff Sadie Darnell, Alachua County Sheriff’s Office, Chief Vera Bumpers, Houston METRO Police, Major Annmarie Cardona, North Miami Police Department, and Michelle Cook, Director for the Department of Patrol and Enforcement, Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office. This panel, moderated by CNN’s Kelly Wallace, will provide both a professional and personal first-hand report of what is happening in our cities and communities. The panel will challenge our thinking about policing, community engagement and TRUST. These women are remarkable and are changing the game. We have the opportunity to help! I cannot wait for you to meet them!

I don’t think anyone would argue that the explosion of digital has turned our former analog world upside down and inside out. From social media to the World Wide Web, digital is a challenging language for some and a native tongue for others. With so much influence and power at our fingertips, how can we use these tools to both grow businesses but also impact societal change? Justin Leedy, Senior Director of Customer Strategy for, will be leading a breakout session on just that—giving you a better understanding of how you can leverage digital content in meaningful ways. 

It’s all about telling and sharing our stories – What a day we will have on MARCH 31st!
