BEMA International Seeking Interns Globally

Thursday, April 6, 2017

About the Black Emergency Managers Association
Black Emergency Managers Association (BEMA) International is the premier association of African and African-Descent Homeland Security & Disaster/Emergency Management professionals
BEMA’s mission is to provide information, networking, educational & professional development opportunities, specifically aimed at to advancing the public health, emergency management and homeland security profession within African and African-Descent communities.
BEMA International efforts are guided by a keen emphasis on the long-term healthy recovery of communities.  BEMA coordinates, collaborates, and strengthens opportunities to assist in ensuring diversity and community involvement in all phases of emergent health and safety engagement inclusive of mobilization, grant opportunities, education and training, and community preparedness.
Internship Approach
BEMA’s internship experience offers an e- virtual working environment to build and broaden one’s experiences.  The internship opportunity is sculpted to attract the skills and services of an eager, results driven emerging professional or a retired professional who holds the passion, commitment and time to share
This internship gives an opportunity for those with a wide level of educational, leadership and professional background, both with or in the pursuit of undergraduate or master's level education to be in a unique position to cross collaborate nationally and internationally in the fields of disaster management, emergency response, agro-climate change, water food and waste management, public health, and public policy.
Overall, the internship experience allows for a rich opportunity to professionally network and enhance one’s influence and increase the capacity of BEMA in its national and global effort to mitigate, prepare for, respond to and recover from natural and man-made disasters, including terrorism.
