Councillor Dr. Candice Pitts partakes in Belize Police Department’s Women’s Conference
The Belize Police Department held a Women’s Conference under the theme: ‘Women! Rising Above Circumstances, Inspiring and Innovating Change’. As previously reported Councillor Dr. Candice Pitts was selected as a panelist for the conference.
Councillor Dr. Pitts gave a very moving and uplifting speech and the officers were very receptive to her sincere and encouraging words…
“As women in leadership positions, we continue to struggle against biases and oppression inherent in the systems in which we operate. The few women political leaders who exist know this all too well. But, we each continue the struggle because we have to put our individual crack in the ceiling–that ceiling that prevents women from ascending to leadership positions, particularly political leadership–until the whole ceiling comes crumbling down!” — Councillor Dr. Candice Pitts
