Resilience by Design
Thu, Apr 7, 2016 1:15 PM - 2:15 PM EDT

Join Joseph Fiksel, Island Press author and Executive Director of the Sustainable and Resilient Economy program at The Ohio State University, for an in-depth look at enterprise resilience – the critical success factor in a business’s ability to survive, adapt, and flourish in the face of natural disasters and unforeseen supply chain disruptions.

Fiksel’s new book, Resilient By Design, offers insight into why workforce leaders need a new business paradigm – one that takes an integrated view of the built environment, ecosystems, and the social fabric, while recognizing new business opportunities that result from this shift.

Moderator Michelle Wyman, Executive Director of the National Council for Science and the Environment (NCSE), will bring an extensive background in energy and environmental policy at the state and local levels. The webinar will bring context to the importance of resilience across business and municipal communities, and describe why all leaders must move beyond the business-as-usual approach in order to thrive in the 21st century.
