Building Resilience Los Angeles Workshop
July 18, 2017 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Building resilience means planning for change in ways that make you better off now. By leveraging and linking the work organizations are already doing on sustainability, risk management, emergency preparedness and business continuity, you can create new opportunities that improve the public good and the bottom line. USGBC-LA’s Building Resilience-LA program has developed a methodology for busting silos and unleashing potential of buildings, organizations and communities so that they can adapt and thrive no matter what disruptions come their way.
Building resilience requires new skill sets, processes and tools to get the most out of resilience assessments, planning and implementation. USGBC-LA is offering full-day capacity-building workshops to set practitioners in a wide variety of fields and departments on the path to success. The workshops are based on the Building Resilience-LA Primer for Facilities to help existing building projects create physical, social and economic resilience. Using real-world case studies and hands-on exercises, this course will get you ready to implement the BRLA process in your projects.
Who should attend: Building owners, managers and operators; architects, engineers and sustainability professionals; risk managers and emergency management professionals; community organizers and public health professionals, and anyone seeking to learn how to create more resilient buildings and organizations.
Heather Rosenberg, Director, Building Resilience-LA Program at USGBC-LA
