For this month’s Confluence, we wanted to highlight tribal emergency managers. Our Education & Outreach Coordinator, Brandi Hunter, recommended we highlight Elyzabeth Estrada. Brandi said, “I met Elyzabeth on LinkedIn.  She had joined Aspiring Emergency Managers Online and introduced herself to me, and said she would like to help the community any way she could.  From there, I asked her if she would like to do one of AEMO’s video series called ‘3-Minute Informational Videos’, which features professional emergency managers and provides a snapshot of their experience as an emergency manager in their field/expertise and how aspiring emergency managers can [...]

Imposter Syndrome: My Own Battle

2020-06-26T18:52:23+00:00

Imposter Syndrome: My Own Battle by Kellie Hale I had the pleasure of attending the Empower: Women in Leadership Conference on March 9, which was hosted by the Centers of Excellence for Construction and Marine Manufacturing. It was my first time attending the conference that was geared towards women in the trade industry. With an array of women presenters offering insight into their own experiences in areas such as discrimination, sexual harassment, mental health, and equal rights, it was very eye opening that as women, we still have quite a way to go in order to be viewed as equals [...]

Intersectionality: Vital Component for Feminism

2020-06-26T18:50:33+00:00

Intersectionality: Vital Component for Feminism By Kellie Hale The first known use of the term "intersectionality" was in 1989 by Kimberle Crenshaw, a scholar and civil rights advocate. It was when Ms. Crenshaw was studying to be a lawyer that she saw how race and gender were treated as two "completely separate issues." There was no rhyme or reason that these two issues needed to be isolated from one another. Ms. Crenshaw, an African American, experienced first-hand how women of color are twice as likely to be discriminated against. Intersectionality in feminism has become more of a focus point in [...]

Kick Doors Open, But Be Sure to Leave a Doorstop

Kick Doors Open, But Be Sure to Leave a Doorstop By Kellie Hale When I organized/planned the first Women in Leadership Forum back in 2015, I originally thought it was going to be a one-time forum. Thankfully, the positive response from attendees indicated that the Forum needed to be a yearly event. Therefore, for the past four-years, the Center has put on an annual Woman in Leadership Forum on different topics such as politics, technology, and HSEM. This year’s Forum theme will be agriculture, particularly how women are the new faces of American farming and the trials and tribulations they [...]
