Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Response for the Workplace: From awareness to action

This symposium approaches emergency management, disaster planning, and business continuity through a refreshing lens: psychology. Why is it that some organizations thrive, while others fail, when threatened with uncertainty? What makes some people prepare for the Cascadia subduction zone earthquake, while others ignore it? What are the best ways to prepare for, respond to, and recover from an active shooter situation? Our expert panel of speakers will help tackle these questions by delving into the why so that we can better understand the how—taking us from “awareness” to “action” in the Pacific Northwest.
