South Boise Women’s Correctional Center Warden Liz Neville received the Distinguished Project Award for her CPM project, “Empowered Women.” 

The project provides women who are beginning a period of incarceration at a correctional facility with the support they need to successfully adapt to their new surroundings.

“I saw how desperate the need was for the women to have someone to lean on… [I]f they’re in the toughest place in their life. that they need all the support they can get,” Warden Neville said. 

CPM is a professional designation which indicates the holder has completed more than 300 hours of coursework and mastered a set of public-sector management skills.

The CPM designation was created in 1979 as part of national effort to improve the performance of public sector managers. 

Idaho got involved in 2000 when Governor Dirk Kempthorne signed an executive order that stated the CPM program would be the state's preferred method for developing managers.

In addition to learning new skills, the CPM program gives participants an opportunity to build professional relationships beyond their agencies and, in turn, help make Idaho government as a whole more efficient and better able to serve its citizens.
