Who is Missing?

I love this question “Who is missing?” that Andrea poses to think about how to ensure that disaster response efforts consider the input of people impacted by them and to ensure that broader representation occurs. I am glad that the discussion on diversity, inclusion, and representation has grown over the recent years but too often we still fail to bring in a vital viewpoints or expand our understanding beyond our normal social circles. I love the thought that Captain Lushan Hannah shared about intentionally including people and we saw an example of how important representation is in Kasey Arguelles’ response to the nomination of Admiral Linda Fagan as the first female Commandant of the Coast Guard. I hope that we can learn from this to be more intentional about seeking to include the voices and perspectives that are missing from our current conversations and decisions. As we look to include more voices and perspectives, we will find that we can reap the benefits of diversity and start to see the world in a more holistic way to understand all the obstacles from different viewpoints as we move along the path of life.
