Breakout Session

Building Resilience: From Theory to Action

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring

Our globally interconnected system is experiencing a growing number of stresses and shocks—from climate disruption, to geopolitical volatility, to COVID-19. What can companies do to develop a more holistic understanding of the risks they face and develop strategies and collaborations to build the resilience of their businesses and the communities in which they operate? Join us for a discussion, led by company leaders and experts focused on turning resilience theory into robust strategy and action, on how to build climate resilience across your global value chain, how to stress-test strategies against different possible futures, and opportunities for collaboration with partners.
