Some considerations:

  • Diverse women and men may contribute different skills to emergency preparedness, response and recovery, both as professionals and as community members.
  • How can you leverage individual strengths without exploiting gendered stereotypes and inequities?
  • Vulnerabilities and risks are context-specific, therefore emergency program services need to be informed by a variety of perspectives in the community.


  • Ensure that a diversity of community organizations are included in the design and delivery of the emergency response.
  • Consider promoting gender and diversity training for emergency planners and responders.
