In recent years, private industry has often been on the front lines of disaster response, rapidly rendering aid to affected communities. While this immediate assistance is of immense value, businesses also have the potential to play an important role in helping to ensure the long-term preparedness and resilience of communities. Please join CSIS and the Irene W. and C.B. Pennington Foundation for an on-the-record panel discussion exploring how the public and private sectors can work together to strengthen community preparedness and resilience in the face of disasters.
6:00PM-7:00PM: Panel Discussion
The CSIS-Pennington Family Foundation Series on Community Resilience has been made possible, in part, with support from Walmart.
