Webinar - Diversity: Just Gender and Race… Or a Diversity of Perspectives?

Mar 16, 2018 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Arizona Time

Presenter: Sara Brown, USFS Human Performance & Organizational Learning Research, Development & Applications

Sponsor: Southwest Fire Science Consortium

Let us unpack an “uncomfortable” question: Why don’t women in fire universally encourage more women to join fire? This discussion will be based on the following premise: “fitting in with the firefighter culture is essential for safety and a positive work environment.” Sara Brown will explore the firefighter culture, how women do this “fitting in,” and implications of the associated lost opportunities for truly diversifying the firefighting workforce. Personal anecdotes, experiences, and woman-related oral tradition will be used to illustrate challenges and highlight possible opportunities for future improvement.
