The last few years have forced us to rethink how together we respond to increasing disruptions. Societal resilience is our collective capacity to anticipate, absorb, and adapt to disruption. Our resilience will continue to be called upon to address disruptions like pandemics, natural disasters, and global sustainability. We are rethinking how we identify what communities need when disrupted so we can develop the technologies, systems, and partnerships to weather the storms. This panel explores lessons learned, technologies created, and partnerships built to foster a more resilient, sustainable world. We will also discuss how new technologies can play a crucial role by amplifying the ability of organizations to reach and support the individuals and communities that make up our society.
