Resilience Session #3: Learning From Systems Resilience for More Impactful Global Development

  • January 15, 2020
    9:30 AM - 11:00 AM

Grounding ourselves in a common understanding of the seven tenets of systems resilience, we’ll talk through examples of how the tenets play out in a social-ecological system and in a hypothetical global development system. The second half of the session will workshop resilience in your own global development system by exploring how it maps to the seven tenets and explore where you hold power to influence greater resilience – in your practice, and in the system as a whole.

Presenter Bio: Annie Contractor grew up in rural Wyoming, served as a US Peace Corps Volunteer in Zambia, hand-built a log cabin, farmed lettuce in Hawai’i, and amplified Brazilian activists. Along the way she designed and led four social justice research studies on three continents that have directly impacted food security, environmental justice, housing justice, and low-income mothers’ access to quality jobs. Workplace Equity Partners leverages these skills of applied research and resiliency planning to the task of eliminating differences in pay, career opportunity, and work satisfaction for people of all identities – so they, and the organizations in which they work, can thrive.

This event is open to the general public and both in person and online. Google Hangouts link will be sent to registrants one hour before the start of the event.  Registration below is required to attend.
