About this panel discussion:

How corporate responsibility leaders are adjusting their giving strategies to a world where disasters aren’t what they used to be.

2023 was an unprecedented year for natural catastrophes in the U.S., with more than 20 individual billion-dollar disasters -- the largest number on record. And that figure doesn't account for humanitarian crises and evolving global volatility. 

The last few years have stretched many disaster and crisis relief programs in ways companies never anticipated -- a trend expected to continue. These are the moments when all eyes are on your work, and corporate responsibility leaders need to be prepared. 

Join our panel discussion for insights from some of the foremost ESG & CSR leaders on:

  • Proactively building policies and rubrics to decide where, when, and how to respond 
  • Positioning your strategies for the potential of more and worse disasters
  • Balancing the need to support immediate relief, long-term recovery, and future resilience in vulnerable communities
  • Finding opportunities for corporate collaboration around disaster relief 
  • Managing public perception and fielding questions about your company’s response
