Fire. Flood. Earthquakes. With climate change making itself felt, the environmental challenges we face are changing rapidly – and so too are the ways people of different genders are impacted by them.
Who gets to lead, and what does that mean for the climate emergency? As part of our Women at the Edge series, a panel of remarkable women working in disaster management will consider how we can take action on gender justice in disaster – and why we need to.
This thought-provoking discussion features an introduction from the Minister for Women, The Hon. Gabrielle Williams MP to launch the Gender Justice in Disaster: Inspiring Action conference, with Fire Rescue Victoria’s Commander Donna Wheatley, Commissioner for Gender Equality in the Public Sector Niki Vincent, Dr Meagan Tyler from the Centre for People, Organisation and Work at RMIT, and Cathy McGowan AO.
Presented in partnership with The Wheeler Centre
