We started as a public-private partnership in 2002 and continue to use that as our base. As such, we see solutions don’t come from only one sector, but from a combination of all of them. Business, government, non-profits, science, and the community all hold keys in the resilience puzzle and what we have developed reflects this.

We’re always looking to connect with new partners in every sector that can help us achieve our mission, and, we can help you meet yours. We have partners at local, state, regional, national, and international levels such as for the development of the Resilient Business program (Saglam Kobi) in Turkey. We would welcome the opportunity to partner with your organization – email us at to connect!

We are so appreciative of all our partners who, for nearly two decades, have helped us bring our tools, resources and expertise to workplaces in the U.S. and abroad. Communities are made more resilient by each business and non-profit that takes action to strengthen against all hazards.
