Confirmed to Speak:
Annell Smith - Criminal Justice Specialist
Innovative and visionary leader with justice sector expertise. Her extensive experience encompasses public sector, central government, consultancy, inter-governmental organisations and academia. She has led operational delivery and implementation of women's strategy at London Probation Trust's Women Centre.

Flo Krause - Leading Human Rights Barrister

Farah Damji - Former Offender, now Campaigner for Women's Rights
Now a advocate for social justice, she will deliver the compassion and mindfulness section of the training, accredited by ASDAN. Farah founded Kazuri Properties CiC after being released in 2007 and finding existing services didn't have boxes that suited the shape of her tick - so she created her own4

We will explore issues such as protected characteristics, ethnicity, class and social standing, from a gender sensitive, trauma informed approach
We look at why women who commit crimes are often the same women who have suffered extreme violence and become both perpetrators and victims of appalling crimes.

We explore key skills that make us more resilient:
Visioning skills that strengthen our sense of purpose by helping us see, and then head for, the outcomes that attract us
Creative problem-solving skills that help us find a path through the obstacles in the way
Positive relationship skills that enhance our ability to find allies and draw in the support we need
Emotional intelligence skills that raise our capacity to work with our emotions, so that we can benefit from the guiding signals and energy they offer.
The day will involve a mix of presentation, storytelling, guided exercises and group discussion. The goal is to increase each participant's ability to draw upon the resilience they need in their lives.
