WEBINAR: Leaders in Disaster Recovery | A Virtual Panel Discussion

In celebration of Women’s History Month, IEM is pleased to convene leaders for a panel discussion on disaster recovery. Leaders – both public sector at all levels and the private sector – play critical roles in helping communities achieve an equitable and lasting recovery following a disaster or other crisis, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. How do we make communities stronger, healthier, and more prosperous following acute and chronic stressors? This panel will feature leaders helping promote and advance long-term recovery in the United States.
