About

HERricane is a national program by the Institute for Diversity and Inclusion in Emergency Management (I-DIEM) that provides women a means to explore a career in Emergency Management (as well as associated ones) while developing leadership skills, ensuring success in whatever path they choose. Women are underrepresented in Emergency Management but make up a disproportionate amount of disaster victims particularly regarding loss of life, sexual violence, and loss of income.

Disclaimer: HERricane Program is a nationally-recognized program of I-DIEM and implementation of the Program without approval of I-DIEM is inadmissible.

If you are interested in hosting a hurricane program please complete a letter of intent form.
