HSEMA Off the Record
Women in Emergency Management
It's no secret that emergency management is a traditionally male-dominated field. But at HSEMA, there are so many dedicated women that are committed to helping District residents, businesses and visitors. Our team believes in breaking stereotypes, and we're not just talking about gender. HSEMA is a diverse workforce in every sense of the word - age, gender, ethnicity, race, and religion.
HSEMA’s Jerica Shackelford, Deputy Chief of Staff, and Carrie Speranza, Deputy Director, join us this week to discuss the importance of having a diverse workforce and how women can make their mark in the emergency management field.
