Diversifying HayWired: Connecting with Marginalized Communities to Improve Risk Communication
The Diversifying HayWired Communication project brought together Bill Anderson Fund (BAF) Fellows with collaborators from the U.S. Geological Survey HayWired Earthquake Scenario, Stanford University, and the Natural Hazards Center to connect with marginalized communities in the Bay Area that are likely to face disproportionate impacts from a large earthquake. The BAF Fellows utilized an iterative process to identify categories of stakeholder organizations serving these communities, collect data about their priorities and concerns, and create information products that were tailored for each type of organization to promote disaster awareness and preparedness with their constituencies.
During this interactive webinar, the BAF Fellows will showcase the products they conceptualized to foster inclusive engagement around earthquake risk. There will also be time for Q&A. We hope you will join this special session to learn more about how you can improve risk communication efforts in partnership with marginalized communities, no matter what hazard you are hoping to address.
