About Us

The committee has been organized in different workgroups to focus on the priority areas identified by the full standing committee. Below are descriptions of the workgroups and their current projects. 

WORKGROUP #1 Connection, Support & Community Building
Objective: To build, encourage, and enhance community & support among judicial officers. Immediate project areas include creating opportunities to promote skills related to identifying compassion fatigue and secondary trauma and creating a regularly scheduled forum for discussion about stressors of being a judicial officer.  Future projects may include hobby groups or get-connected activities.

WORKGROUP #2 Educational Programming
Objective: To develop and provide standalone and ongoing educational opportunities to promote a culture of well-being. Immediate project areas include a judicial-wide yoga/mindfulness program, judicial conference programming and quarterly well-being related webinars.  Future projects may include programming around vicarious trauma & resilience; wellness roundtables etc.

WORKGROUP #3 Diversity, Equity & Inclusion
Objective: To provide community, networking, and support for diverse judges. Current project areas include “Chamber Chats” and retention support. Click here for more information on Chamber Chats.

WORKGROUP #4 Leave Support
Objective: To promote adequate resources and structure to provide leave support for all judicial officers to be able to take leave when needed for things such as vacation, medical issues, family responsibilities and training. Current project areas include developing proposals for changes to the senior judge program; sabbatical programs; and developing strategies to enhance collegiality for local coverage etc.

WORKGROUP #5 Website
Objective: To continue developing and sustaining the Judicial Well-Being Website. Immediate projects include reviewing & vetting new content; soliciting judge-authored articles; marketing etc.

WORKGROUP #6 Clarity

Objective: Clarity is an open collaborative of judicial officers seeking healthy, vibrant connections in a substance-free community. Clarity is open to any judicial officer who seeks community with others who are on a path of substance-free living. The only requirement to participate is to be sober for any activities you choose to join. Clarity provides support for its members at judicial events by offering a safe, substance-free group to engage with. Seek out members with a badge tag. Any Clarity member will welcome you, pressure-free. Clarity provides additional, non-judicial related social connection through various activities.  Clarity can provide simple social connection all the way up to mentorship and direct connection with COLAP, pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 254.
