This program exposes young women to the “hidden” career field of emergency management. Throughout this experience, participants will receive hands-on, developmental training in:
• Emergency Management
• Communication and Meteorology
• Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
• Public Health
• Women’s Empowerment
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.
