President Aoun: What does it mean to be resilient?
To celebrate the launch of the Global Resilience Institute, Northeastern President Joseph E. Aoun examines the question, “What does it mean to be resilient?” On May 23, 2017, the Global Resilience Institute held its D.C. launch event at GRI's D.C. office just blocks from the White House. The launch event came on the heels of GRI's Inaugural Boston Launch and a flash talks and networking event. Attendees included current and former federal, state, and local government officials, industry stakeholders, and academic researchers. The event also provided an opportunity for GRI to showcase the valuable lessons learned and policy recommendations coming out of the Institute's recent and ongoing research projects to practitioners charged with increasing societies' security and resilience.
