NIC has established a broad array of networks designed to bring people together from a particular discipline within the larger criminal justice and corrections arenas. The newest NIC network to be established is the Gender Responsive Network. NIC sponsored a Gender Responsive Summit this past spring that brought together researchers, practitioners, community stakeholders, service providers, and NIC staff to discuss the future of gender responsive work with NIC. One of the recommendations was to create a Gender Responsive Network that will consist of those working with women in prison, in jails and in the community.
NIC is looking forward to creating a forum for those working with women to come together to share information and discuss pressing issues. Virtual listening sessions will be held this fall and winter 2023 to gather information and establish how this network will benefit your agency and facility.
