EDMG650 - Social Justice Issues in Emergency Management

 

Emergencies and disasters do or can impact all people, anywhere, at any time. The emergency and disaster management field was developed in recognition of this, and seeks to prepare practitioners and public officials for the challenges that they will face. Evidence indicates that the impact of disasters is not distributed evenly—that in fact, the poor, minorities, and women are disproportionately impacted by disasters. This is something that students, practitioners, and public officials must be aware of in order to effectively and ethically discharge their respective duties. This course will make current and future officials aware of the impacts of race, poverty, gender, and similar social justice issues that they will need to consider in their careers in emergency management and public service.
