The Australasian Women in Emergencies Network (AWE) is an organization of women in emergency management and disaster resilience who recognizes the value of strength in connections towards a resilient future.
With approximately 1200 members and counting, the organization's founder, Bridget Tehan, explained that the goal of raising AUD $10,000 this October would be used for:
· A new mentoring program to support members at different career stages
· More scheduled events that bring women together to connect and learn
· An upgraded AWE website to be the central hub of the network – complete with a member directory, chapter pages, event and mentoring info, a resource library, blogs, news, forums and more.
If you're keen to empower and support women who has significantly contributed to emergency management and disaster resilience, your donation would greatly help AWE to the next level and strengthen our network.

Attended the "Resilience through Information Sharing and Collaborative Engagement Workshop" conducted by CIFAL and UNITAR yesterday. Interesting conversation with academia, local council, emergency personnel, private and government sectors about disaster resilience research, public information and engagement. #conversation #disasterriskreduction #disastermanagement #disasterplanning
