Organizations strive to foster sustainability, and we often think that we will be able to adapt thanks to careful planning. Speakers Rodney E. Gaddy and Emily S. Lancucki have learned that riding the wave of catalysts like the pandemic, stakeholder changes, and consumer feedback can ultimately lead to personal and product resilience. Sharing lessons learned from careers in law, nonprofits, and community health, Rodney and Emily will discuss navigating change in order to achieve a sustainable future.
