The Power in the Peer: Peer Partnership Development in Humanitarian Education Confirmation

July 1, 2020 4p.m. EDT

Humanitarian work requires those involved to be in a constant state of flux; whether with people, resources, and oftentimes both. Typically with humanitarian work environments, there is this “boss with the power over workers without power” mentality and that has the potential to create a toxic and resentful community. We will be discussing strategies to create an environment where peer relationships are viewed as an equal partnership rather than those based on power. We will discuss how you can develop a strong, multi-generational, and diverse team while capitalizing on the wealth of experience so everyone feels included and valued.

Beyond the Checkbox: Make the Most of Your Training Exercises

April 15, 2020

A discussion of the components often missing from holistic emergency management and crisis response training exercises. Preparedness, response, and recovery activities require so much more than tactical planning – as such, communities depend on agencies to have short- and long-term strategies in mind.
