Past decades may provide evidence of a void in leadership in the criminal justice community as evidenced, in the U.S., by over 1,400 exonerations and existence tens of thousand of untested sexual assault kits with some dating back over twenty years. However, your actions by coming together at this Conference provide the nexus between values and leadership, which is the catalyst driving the power of innovation and collaboration to ease suffering around the globe. Values are not words showcased in mission and vision statements, but rather are personal commitments engraved in the hearts and souls of individuals who communicate their leadership through actions that challenge the status quo by seeing how life ought to be.When Darwin stepped off the Beagle and wrote his manuscripts, he gave scientists and business professionals the agency to think independently and drive innovation through collaboration rafter than obedience to dogma of the day. Through this platform, you have an opportunity to establish those relationships that allow you to understand more and see more of what John Salisbury observed in the 12th century by standing on the shoulders of giants, We see more, and things that are more distant, because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours.
