What is the conference about?

This conference is a three-day event that focuses on spreading awareness and networking within the safe workspace & whistleblowing community. We have a variety of high-profile attorneys, social workers, and congressional guest speakers who are spearheading the movement, as well as whistleblowers.

Join us in 2022 in Pensacola Beach, Florida or by live-stream and continue to invest in our vision of a safe place to work. We believe that culture change happens when energized personnel – across organizations, communities, and governments make healthy and informed decisions in the workplace.

The WPI conference offers the core 10 hour curriculum for Whistleblower Protection Advocate (WPA) Certification issued by Workplace Promise Institute (WPI). The Workplace Promise Institute is the education center for Whistleblowers of America.

Sessions from September 7 - 9th 2022 will meet the core training requirements for Whistleblower Protection Advocate Certification and may be eligible for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) from the University of West Florida.

    • Agenda

This outline should display a course breakdown with a timed schedule of the day's event(s). It must include individual course segments, guided discussion, and activities, where applicable.

Resources for further study:

  • List at least 3 current (within the past 10 years), relevant (aligned with learning objectives and content), supporting (e.g., peer- review journal articles), and complete references (in APA format) as evidence that program content has met the requirements for APA standards. Books may be used in addition to peer reviewed journals/periodicals. This is a required field for APA Credits. Please note that research cited in the references must have clear linkage between program content. For example, simply listing a journal article on a broad or related issue is unacceptable until and unless the applicant specifically documents how the referenced research is relevant to the specific program content. It is not acceptable to assert that the program content has been included in peer-reviewed publications without providing specific references that are currently available to reviewers and support that assertion. If included references are authored or co-authored by the session presenter(s), please be sure to note this as a potential conflict of interest later in this application.

  • Please include at least five references (or 50%, whichever is less) that were published within the past five years. Please use APA format.

This workshop is geared to the clinician at the following levels:

  • Beginner

  • Intermediate

  • Advanced

  • Please select the course level


List specific, clear and concise learning objectives and/or outcomes for the course that are both behavioral and measurable.

(Course learning objectives need to be measurable and/or observable. They should state what a participant will be able to demonstrate immediately after attending the course. To "understand" or "have familiarity with" something is not measurable or observable. Verbs like "describe, name, explain, define, recall, list, restate, role-play, summarize, and write" are the most common used to describe what the attendee will actually be able to demonstrate after attending the training.)

  • Objective 1

  • Objective 2

  • Objective 3


    • Please provide previous experience of addressing diversity as well as your plan for doing so in regard to this proposal.
