Please join your colleagues from business, philanthropy, and nonprofit and community organizations on Thursday, September 17th for a lively, informative discussion about whole community resiliency as a strategy for disaster preparedness. 

Whole community resiliency is about making investments in social and community networks, nonprofit capacity, and other physical and social infrastructure key to community operations. 

Join us to hear from leading government, business, and philanthropic voices about their strategies for preparing communities, organizations, grantees, and families for shocks from Southern California’s greatest natural and man-made risks (earthquakes, fires, drought, and pandemics). 

Following opening remarks by Dr. Lucy Jones, USGS Seismologist & Science Advisor on Seismic Safety to LA Mayor Eric Garcetti, Jarret Barrios, CEO, American Red Cross Los Angeles Region will moderate a discussion with our featured panel:

  • William H. Ahmanson, President, The Ahmanson Foundation
  • Jeff Reeb, Director of Emergency Management at the Chief Executive Office LA County
  • Rob Freeman, Operations Division Chief Emergency Management Department City of Los Angeles
  • Rod Harden, Head of Catastrophe Claims, Farmers Insurance

Together we’ll explore opportunities to demonstrate leadership and make investments to ensure our region can bounce back stronger than ever after a disaster. As part of a lead-up to our Annual Conference, Building Resilient Communities: Opportunities for Philanthropic Leadership, this conversation will allow us to explore disaster preparedness as one example of the need to build resilient communities.

SCG is proud to present this program in partnership with the American Red Cross, and with our co-presenters The Ahmanson Foundation and Farmers Insurance. Lunch will be included in the program.
