Equity Revolution

Given the current climate of civil unrest, the need for equitable solutions in research, policy, and practice is receiving increased acknowledgment. This need requires a fervent understanding of key differences between equality and equity, and how each of those impacts’ outcomes among minorities and vulnerable populations. The Institute for Diversity and Inclusion in Emergency Management (I-DIEM) will be leading the revolution towards equity. #EquityRevolution is an educational awareness and fundraising campaign to educate people on why equity is important while raising funds for I-DIEM initiatives that seek to promote and integrate diversity, inclusion, and equity within emergency management.
