WDA is excited to be partnering with the Court Improvement Training Academy (CITA) and JustLead Washington to provide the 2019 Defender Leadership Development Program. The mission of the program is “developing defenders into effective leaders, advocates and agitators for advancing innovative ideas for clients and communities.” We welcome individuals seeking to develop leadership skills regardless of experience, organizational status or job description and encourage both those in traditional leadership positions and those who are leading in other ways to attend. We are seeking diversity in geographic, practice area and lived experience from our participants. The program is highly interactive and open to participants with different perspectives and goals.
