Diversity and inclusion framework for emergency management policy and practice

Source(s):  Bushfire and Natural Hazards Cooperative Research Centre (BNHCRC)

There is often tension between the core work of Emergency Management Sector (EMS) organisations, as the development of Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) is often seen as a secondary activity that is a cost to the workforce rather than an investment in the future workforce. This tension has been exacerbated by deeply entrenched cultural and institutional factors. This framework aims to provide a basis for practitioners to address these issues through a strength-based approach, which builds upon current practice and expertise in the sector.

The framework has been developed in response to needs that were identified in collaboration with practitioners across the sector, which included:

  • The need to develop a greater understanding of the implementation process and the role inclusion plays in this process.
  • Identification of the types of structures and practice that support the development of effective implementation.
  • Mechanisms for addressing the lack of value attributed to D&I.
  • Greater understanding of the benefits that can be, and are, derived from D&I.
