Senior Women in
Policing Conference 2019
Change – Culture – Collaboration – Conversation
Registration is now open!
In 2019, the Senior Women in Policing conference will be held in Birmingham between Wednesday 6th – Friday 8th March and will be hosted by Staffordshire, Warwickshire, West Mercia and West Midlands Police forces. The timing of the conference is significant as it provides the opportunity to celebrate together International Women’s Day on the final day of the conference – Friday 8th March.
Hosted in two stunning city centre venues, the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and The Library of Birmingham, we are offering an impressive main stage line-up compered by our host, TV presenter Steph McGovern, and supported by a diverse range of workshops. We also have a great array of keynote speakers culminating with our closing keynote speaker on Friday 8th March – mental health campaigner and author Ruby Wax. In addition, our fringe events will provide delegates with a unique opportunity to get a real taste for the culture of our region and communities, whilst creating the right environment for those vital conversations with like-minded leaders.
We are taking a different approach to the look and feel of the conference in 2019, where we will be looking at:
The SWiP19 conference committee’s purpose is to be a catalyst for change, to create a lasting legacy which goes way beyond the conference itself. Our goal is that delegates return back to their forces inspired and encouraged to share their learning, putting plans into action, supported by their colleagues from across the UK.

Throughout the conference, we will be fundraising for two brilliant causes – Dream Challenges: Women V Cancer and the UK Police Memorial. Further details to follow – in the meantime, find out more about these great charities below:
Dream Challenges: Women V Cancer
Women V Cancer brings together three very important women’s cancer charities: Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust. These three charities are committed to supporting the thousands of people across the UK who are sadly affected by women’s cancers and researching into developing effective treatments and cures for ovarian, breast and cervical cancers.
The aim is to get thousands of women cycling crazy distances to raise funds for the charities – with our very own West Mercia DCC Amanda Blakeman and Sarah Jane Chaloner cycling from London to Paris in September 2019. Their aim is to raise over £5,000, so every penny of support will help them push on through and target therapies and support for those who go through treatment in the future.

UK Police Memorial
The new UK Police Memorial will honour the dedication, courage and sacrifice of many of the thousands of members of the United Kingdom’s police service who have given their lives to serve and protect their communities since the establishment of the world’s first recognised police service over 250 years ago.
The new UK Police Memorial is a project of The Police Arboretum Memorial Trust. The Police Arboretum Memorial Trust, a registered charity (Number 1159831), is beginning its mission by undertaking an ambitious campaign to raise at least £4 million to design, build and maintain a new UK Police Memorial.
The new UK Police Memorial will complement other memorials around the UK, notably: the National Police Memorial at the Mall; the Scottish Police Memorial at Tulliallan Police College; the Northern Ireland Police Memorial at PSNI Headquarters in Belfast:The Beat and the Police Memorial Garden, which are already located at the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire, and all memorials situated within Police Forces across the UK, along with all those which commemorate individuals who have fallen.
