2016 Recipient ~ Rowe Leathers
Rowe Leathers addresses the needs of underserved populations, and has brought to MACCA topics that many shy away from.
In 2014 and 2015, she co-presented, “From Orange to Black: Empowering Career Professionals to Assist People with a Criminal Past Transition Forward” and “Career Coaching the Underserved and Overlooked.”
Her contributions have been published on websites such as Careers in Government and DC Jobs. Additionally, she provides workshops for military veterans transitioning into the civilian workforce and coaches at FBI National Academy Associates conferences to assist retiring law enforcement. Rowe seeks to promote the values that MACCA members exemplify.
