Susan speaks with Jaspreet Kaur, Krissy Nicholson and Karleen Gribble on the new sections being added to the Gender and Emergency Management Guidelines.
The conversation will consider how organisations can use the checklist to improve their service provision. The checklist includes the needs of women, and people of diverse gender and sexual identities in all aspects of disaster planning.
Jaspreet and Krissy talk about their gendered evacuation and relief centre checklist and upcoming action-workshop with the City of Casey. The workshop includes scenario-based sessions to consider the practicalities involved in actioning and implementing the checklists.
Karleen is an Adjunct Associate Professor in the School of Nursing and Midwifery at Western Sydney University and will present on the new pregnant and breastfeeding mothers’ section of the GEM guidelines, and outlines what she would like to see happen with the checklist once complete.
