Crisis Leadership - Cosponsored by NIC

Speakers: Panda J. Adkins, National Institute of Corrections and Robert W. Weinhold, Jr., The Fallston Group

Room: Grand 5-6, Time Slot: Mon 04/10/17 02:00 PM - 05:00 PM

Crises cost time, money, customers and careers, and, in the worst of scenarios, lives. According to studies, 77% of crises are smoldering issues before they become an actual crisis. It is important to perform a crisis audit within your organization so that you minimize your reputational risk. This workshop explores the definition, anatomy, and early warning signs of crisis; the importance of organizational muscle memory; how to lead and what to communicate to enhance stakeholder trust and confidence; the nuances of crisis leadership, strategy, and communications; and the immediate steps to protect your people, secure your assets, and strengthen your brand. Are you ready to tell your story and meet the leadership moment?

Victims Behind Bars: Identify and Address the Sex Trafficking of Women Offenders - Cosponsored by NIC

Speakers: Jose Ramirez, Florida Department of Law Enforcement , Raul S. Banasco, Tarrant County Sheriff's Office Detention Bureau and Evelyn Bush, National Institute of Corrections

Room: Grand 3-4, Time Slot: Tue 04/11/17 02:00 PM - 05:00 PM

We always think that the perpetrator—and not the victim—of injustice is behind bars. However, there is a law that says different and we have unidentified and unsupported victims behind bars every day. They may not identify their exploiter as a trafficker, pimp, or abuser, but he or she is. This workshop provides participants with an awareness of the Federal Law, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, and the impact on the women under the supervision of jails and prisons. It also emphasizes the need to identify potential human-trafficking victims and create a pathway for prevention, protection, and prosecution.
