Simsi’s partnership with the 30×30 Initiative aims to advance women leaders in policing. The Data-Driven Women in Policing Fellowship aims to advance women police officers to leadership ranks by increasing access to the tools, training, and practical experiences in data analytics that shape 21st century policing programs and operations.
Women currently make up only 12% of sworn officers and 3% of police leadership in the United States. The 30×30 Initiative is a coalition of police leaders, researchers, and professional organizations who have joined together to advance the representation and experiences of women in policing agencies across the U.S. It is built on decades of research that shows the unique benefits women officers bring to policing agencies.
Increasing the number of women in police recruit classes is a key step towards better public safety. Women police officers must also be afforded every opportunity to rise through the ranks to become leaders in their departments and communities. Promotion in the policing profession can be a lengthy and competitive process. It may depend on specialized training, proven abilities to problem-solve, or technological expertise that make a candidate stand-out from the crowd.
Simsi partnered with the 30×30 Initiative to launch the Data-Driven Women In Policing Fellowship. This fellowship opens the door to opportunities for professional development and career advancement, while providing the support and mentorship needed to learn and excel along the way.
