THE ETHICS OF PANDEMIC PLANNING

From Monday, May 14, through Thursday, May 17, Harvard Business School, Harvard Medical School, and National Preparedness Leadership Initiative -- a collaborative program of the Harvard School of Public Health and Harvard's John F. Kennedy School of Government -- are presenting a conference on business preparedness for a pandemic.

The organizers of the event describe it as: "practical and hard-hitting. It is a time-effective way to get up to speed on exactly what you need to know. There are three components:

  • an executive overview day (if you can only come for one day, this is the one),
  • a two-day leadership preparedness summit (going in-depth on critical issues and providing scenario exercises),
  • and a scenario-planning workshop day (to help you plan scenario exercises for your organization)."

I'll be participating on a panel at the event.
