Resilience Alliance announced at Airmic Fest

A new initiative aimed at promoting the importance of resilience has been launched by Airmic, ASIS International, the BCI and the Institute of Workplace and Facilities Management.

The new Resilience Alliance aims to enhance industry collaboration and help organisations adapt to sudden crises and disruption by developing and promoting resilience globally.

Each association has developed its own lens and approach to the subject of resilience based on its unique purpose, whilst acknowledging that many resilience challenges are faced and shared by all. Now, part of the new group's work will include the development and promotion of a common understanding of what is meant by the term ‘resilience’.

The Resilience Alliance chairman and secretariat will be rotational between the member bodies on a yearly basis from 1st April.

John Ludlow, CEO of Airmic, explained: “It is important that we work with risk professionals across the spectrum to demonstrate what we believe that resilience is a team game and that together we are stronger.

“The Resilience Alliance member organisations’ united presence at Airmic Fest demonstrates our intent, embracing the theme: ‘Working together in a time of accelerated change'.”
