Delaware’s First Lady, Carla Markell, presented the keynote address for the Sisters in Success Conference on Monday May 13, 2013 at Baylor Women’s Correctional Institution (“BWCI”). The day-long conference, led by Superior Court Judge Jan R. Jurden, brought together a team of professional women from the local community to offer a series of workshops designed to provide women in BWCI with the tools necessary to make a successful transition back into the community. Following First Lady Markell’s keynote address, the women attended a variety of workshops moderated by various Delaware experts. Available workshops explored issues related to personal growth and health awareness, intimate partner violence, grief and loss, educational needs of children, positive relationships, employment skills, emotional development, and re-entry services.
