CONVERGE Positionality Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module and Demonstration Webinar, March 23

The CONVERGE facility, headquartered at the Natural Hazards Center at the University of Colorado Boulder, is so pleased to announce the release of the Positionality in Hazards and Disaster Research Training Module. This module defines positionality and highlights how understanding your own positionality–or how your different identities shape your perceptions, interactions, and experiences–can lead to more ethical and methodologically sound disaster work. You can register and access the free module here:  

To learn more, please join us Thursday, March 23rd, from 10:00 to 10:30 a.m. MT for a live webinar where our team will provide a demonstration of the training module. To register for the upcoming webinar, please visit:  

This new module is part of a larger series of foundational and advanced trainings that are designed to accelerate the education of a diverse hazards and disaster workforce. The module, like the others in the series, concludes with a 10-question quiz. Upon successful completion of the quiz, users receive a certificate, which is worth one contact hour of general management training through the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM) certification program. These modules can be useful for classroom assignments as well as other activities. Please see the CONVERGE Annotated Bibliographies for further readings and the Assignment Bank for sample assignments.
