Student Webinar Series


Students looking to showcase their achievements, increase their profile, and build skills now have a platform through OAEM‘s Student Webinar series. Launched on February 8, 2021, this series highlights the interesting and important work of students within the discipline of emergency management.

Our goal is to feature several students each year. We aim to build up our Series to the point where we offer sessions with greater frequency. The success of this Series depends on you!
