Chauncia Willis and Curtis Brown, co-founders of the Institute for Diversity and Inclusion in Emergency Management (https://i-diem.org/), join us to talk about diversity in emergency management, and why inclusion and diversity is essential for achieving whole community resilience. We also discuss ways to increase diversity through policy and organizational development to enhance representation in the profession of emergency management, and how those impacts extend into the communities served.
