Disaster Response and Resiliency
We deliver education, training, tools and resources to help employers prepare for disasters and resume the important work of serving communities.
We activate purpose-built partnerships and technology platforms that ensure accurate, timely information from the ground and help speed decision-making in moments of crisis.
We break through the clutter to identify specific place-based needs and help the right kinds of relief get to the right places in the right order.
We connect leaders from the highest levels of business, government, and nonprofits to spread good ideas and solve problems together.
