As part of our commitment to supporting modern, diverse workplaces in public safety, Mark43 is a partner of the 30×30 Initiative, a coalition working to increase the representation of women in law enforcement recruit classes to 30 percent by 2030.
30x30 is partnering with several organizations that are offering training opportunities and soliciting fellowship applications. Check them out below and encourage any women in a participating 30x30 agency to apply!
New Blue Fellowship
New Blue is a nonprofit that supports law enforcement officers dedicated to advancing social equity and racial justice. Through a year-long fellowship, officers receive training, mentorship, support for a capstone project, and microgrant funding to implement the project in their agency. Applications for the 2024 cohort are open. Learn more about the organization and this training opportunity.
