Description

 

Every year people and communities across Australia experience emergencies and natural disasters, but not all members of communities are equally affected.

Many people from diverse, marginalised or underrepresented communities experience disasters differently, facing unique challenges that influence their ability to respond and recover.

The Diversity in Disaster conference will engage emergency management practitioners, policy-makers and community services leaders and volunteers with the latest research on disaster resilience.

At the heart of the Diversity in Disaster conference is the opportunity to commit to inclusive and effective emergency management by understanding the strengths and needs of people from a range of backgrounds.

Participants will leave the conference with the tools and approaches to better support diverse communities to prepare, recover, bounce back and thrive.

Registrations are now open.
