Many police agencies strive to recruit more women applicants and members of other minoritized groups. Yet, until recently, there has been very little evidence to guide practice in this area. Using insights from an NIJ-funded research study, From Research to Reality: Recruiting More Women into the Policing Profession, presenters will share recommendations for improving the inclusivity of online recruiting materials.

In this webinar, you will learn how to optimize website content, social media posts, recruitment videos, and job descriptions to encourage women and other diverse candidates to apply. The presenters will also discuss the policies, practices, and culture needed to better support women and all police professionals throughout their careers.

About the National Policing Institute: Formerly known as the National Police Foundation, the National Policing Institute’s mission is to pursue excellence in policing through innovation and science. It is the oldest nationally-known, non-profit, non-partisan, and non-membership-driven organization dedicated to improving America’s most noble profession – policing.

The National Policing Institute has been on the cutting edge of police innovation for over 50 years since it was established by the Ford Foundation as a result of the President’s Commission on the Challenge of Crime in a Free Society (1967) and the related conclusions of the Kerner and Eisenhower Commissions, taking place during the same era.
