Corporate Citizenship Watch Disaster Philanthropy: Fifteen Years after Hurricane Katrina - Lessons Learned and Planning for the Future

AUGUST 25, 2020


Fifteen years ago, Hurricane Katrina hit the Gulf Coast, with more than 1,800 lives lost and damages estimated at over $100 billion. SBP (formerly the St. Bernard Project), a nonprofit, disaster relief organization, grew out of Katrina and has produced productive partnerships with companies such as Toyota Motor North America to build strategies around effective relief efforts, recovery, and rebuilding. 

With the increased frequency of natural disasters, pandemics, epidemics, famines, and human-made occurrences, how can companies best prepare and respond in an era where a business’s capacity to do so is often less than both employees and customers expect?

By attending this webcast, viewers will be able to: 

  • Recognize new strategies for developing and implementing recovery and rebuilding plans 
  • Discover best practices in fostering collaborations between NGOs, governments, and other businesses 
  • Develop ways to overcome resource constraints while still ensuring business continuity & relief efforts 
  • Receive the latest findings from the newly released 2020 Disaster Philanthropy Practices Report 

Who Should Attend: Senior-level corporate citizenship, social responsibility, ESG, and philanthropy leaders
