  • CECP Webinar: Focus on Strategy- Disaster Preparedness
    Aug. 11, 2020 - 10:00 a.m. PDT / 1:00 p.m. EDT

This webinar will focus the latest trends in how companies are incorporating disaster relief efforts and disaster response strategies when natural or man-made disasters hit the communities in which stakeholders-- employees, grantees, customers-- work and live.

Guest presenter Jacob MacIsaac will join Chris Jarvis to discuss their new podcast: A Restorative Approach to Building a Culture of Belonging. This Listen Up! episode will focus on the most difficult aspects of diversity, inclusion and equity in the workplace. This will be a consideration of two incredibly successful methodologies for addressing implicit bias in both systems and individuals: Restorative Practice and Transformative Learning Theory. Based on these two models, and supported by established scientific research across multiple disciplines, we will explore practical ideas for how business can work against systemic racism.

Riley, executive director of WEAVE: The Social Fabric Project at The Aspen Institute, and Gregg Petersmeyer, founder and CEO of Personal Pathways and founding director of the White House Office of National Service under President George H.W.

Unpacking racial justice & equity in business. More than two thirds of Americans find companies with strong diversity, equity, and inclusion values more relevant than other brands, and 80% of Americans believe companies need to recognize their role in systemic racial inequality by acknowledging past mistakes or biases. The SB’20 Just Brands conference, taking place virtually on August 18-19, will help you look closely at existing policies and behaviors, and identify strategies that will authentically address areas for improvement.
