Two local women brought home awards from a recent Women’s Economic Forum in New Delhi, India.

Patty LaTaille, Full Circle Restorative Justice executive director, and Alison Brown, founder and CEO of Navsys Corp. and a Full Circle board member, each received awards during their 2-week trip.

As U.S. delegates to the forum, Brown received the Iconic Woman in Science Leadership award and LaTaille earned the award for Iconic Woman in Humanitarian Approaches to Justice and Rehabilitation.

Brown said she wasn’t sure exactly how many U.S. delegates attended the forum, but in some ways it felt like they didn’t go far from home.

“Most of the women were there because they believe in contributing to their community and also, in a larger sense, to others,” Brown said. “When you think about it, that describes Salida. Look at how many people contribute or volunteer here.”

At the forum Brown discussed challenges faced by young women who try to enter the technology field.

She also discussed some of the opportunities women could have access to if they study engineering or other sciences.

LaTaille discussed cultural differences and unique pathways to peace.

“No matter what cultural differences there are, there has been a version of community justice or tribal justice,” LaTaille said. “The ability to share a panel or stage in regards to building peace and understanding cultural differences was great.”

LaTaille said the trip abroad was not paid for by donations to Full Circle Restorative Justice.

“Alison funded this trip,” LaTaille said. “We wanted people to know that the money they donated was staying here and in the community and helping to serve our kids.”
