Women’s Leadership Award
The Janet Reno Endowment supports the Women’s Leadership Award which recognizes women leaders who champion the causes to which Janet Reno dedicated her career. This annual award is given to a nominee who has demonstrated a commitment and ability to effect change in her community or organization to benefit youth, particularly those at-risk of entering the juvenile justice or child welfare systems. The inaugural Women’s Leadership Award will be presented in April 2017 at the Georgetown University Leadership. Evidence. Analysis. Debate. (LEAD) Conference. In subsequent years, awardees will participate in and be honored at a Janet Reno Forum. CJJR is uniquely positioned to support and coordinate this effort, as it works with women leaders from all over the country, through its Certificate Programs, Crossover Youth Practice Model and Youth in Custody Practice Model.
