Guiding the Reopening of American Business: Learning from Experience
Tuesday, June 16, 2020, 11:30 AM - 12:45 PM EDT
The New York Academy of Sciences
America is several weeks into reopening, yet businesses and citizens alike lack clear and consistent guidance on how to take action and resume regular activity safely and responsibly. The US Federal Reserve has identified September as when data and results will provide more clarity on the future of the American economy. Meanwhile, business owners will grapple with the immediate public health and economic ramifications of reopening all summer long.
This webinar, the second in our “Guiding the Reopening of American Business” series, will feature experts sharing their hands-on experience in reopening and real-world lessons learned to date. The panel will convene public health and business leaders (both US and international) who have been on the front lines helping communities and businesses develop and implement robust and effective plans and procedures for reopening.
Panelists will cover topics such as:
- How have businesses in other countries ensured the health and safety of their employees and customers and what lessons can they share with American counterparts?
- What are some real-world challenges that business leaders who have reopened have faced and successfully overcome? What lessons have they learned regarding supply chain and logistics, HR, and the use of new technologies?
- With the public health emphasis placed on the need for contact tracing and testing to contain the virus, what responsibilities do businesses have to protect their own employees, customers and suppliers?
