Dr. Jane Henrici designs, conducts, and teaches research on gender and intersectionality, focusing on disaster response, development for recovery, and climate change adaptation. She directed and co-directed four COVID-19 projects and collaborated with colleagues in Puerto Rico for a project on cascading disasters. Dr. Henrici directed an international committee gathering on gender and COVID-19 for the Natural Hazards Center of the University of Colorado at Boulder. She represented the Women’s Major Group on organizing committees for two Thematic Sessions of the UN Disaster Risk Reduction’s Global Platform. She’s a Professorial Lecturer in the Gender Program of the Elliott School of International Affairs at GW University.

This virtual, interactive training explores critical ways to incorporate an intersectional feminist lens into pre- and post-disaster assessments. The impacts of disasters vary among population groups, disproportionately affecting those with multiple marginalized identities within a context such as those related to gender, age, disability, socioeconomic status, and others. Moreover, disasters are compounding while climate change worsens. Trainees will learn how to apply a feminist and intersectional approach to disaster- and climate-related assessments in order to identify the inequities and gaps that contribute to context-specific vulnerabilities. Trainees will also explore ways to develop action plans—whether organizational, project-based, or national— based on intersectional feminist assessments to help guide sustainable efforts to reduce inequities and related disaster risks.

All participants will receive a participants’ manual with key terms, resources, and templates.
