Join the Chief Resilience Officers of Oakland and San Francisco to hear about their innovative approaches, the latest resilience practices in Northern California, and the kinds of partnerships they’re making available. The Honorable Libby Schaaf, Mayor of Oakland, will open the program and share her perspective on resilience, her city’s strategy, and how philanthropy can support the resilience of the region. We will also hear about the new Resilient By Design challenge which will catalyze innovative, collaborative planning to build resilience in advance of disaster.
