American Red Cross: Disaster Preparedness Summit


There is no doubt that we have all been affected by this global pandemic and have had to make major adjustments to the way we live our lives. Businesses and organizations of all sizes have had to completely change the way they conduct business – some employees were sent home, some have been overextended to help keep essential businesses up and running, and unfortunately, many businesses have been forced to shut their doors altogether. What have our experiences during this unprecedented time taught us? What lessons have we learned? How has your organizations business model been altered? And how can we take what we have learned and apply it to the next major disaster?  

At our 3rd Annual Disaster Preparedness Summit, you will hear from:

  • Red Cross leadership on how the pandemic has forced the organization to change how they deliver the mission 
  • Industry leaders from major national and global companies, who will share how they have adjusted operations 
  • Local leaders of higher education, government, and other industries and the lessons they have learned 
  •  Special guests with proven experience in leading through both natural and manmade disasters  

This all-virtual event will have breakout sessions with a variety of topics you can choose from, with time for Q&A to further the discussion.
