Women in Leadership Profile: Tieka Adeogun

2021-08-03T21:15:54+00:00

Women in Leadership Profile: Tieka Adeogun Tieka has an impressive stack of certificates from FEMA courses. She can tell you about Incident Command. She knows how to build and evaluate exercises. Her experience in the field, and the degrees she’s earned, mean she’s ready to respond to a wide range of disasters. Even so, it wasn’t until the incident involving a mouse and a kayak that she discovered how completely she’d adopted the lens of an emergency manager. None of those FEMA courses said anything about the kind of small domestic emergency that might occur if a kayak is [...]

Women in Leadership Profile: Tanya Knight By Deb Moller Most people, counting down the five or ten years until retirement age, would never consider tackling a doctoral program. Tanya Knight isn’t like most people. As Tanya says, “As long as I’m healthy, why not keep going?
