Disaster Recovery International (DRI) Foundation is committed to helping our veterans succeed. To do our part, the Foundation has created a Veterans Outreach Program to help our Veterans realize their dreams and help both themselves and their respective organizations achieve great success as they transition into the professions of emergency response, crisis management, business continuity and disaster recovery.
Both in the Women in BCM – Ask Betsy webinar and live at DRI2019, we encouraged you to send in your burning questions for our presenter, BCM veteran Betsy Sayers, MBCP, and you delivered! We’re pleased to present the next installment in a continuing Q&A series.
Q: Do you have any advice for a female BCM coordinator in a first responder organization?
The Women in Business Continuity Management (WBCM) group shines a spotlight on accomplished women across the field of business continuity and related fields.
For this Spotlight on Women in Business Continuity, we have interviewed each of the members of the Women in Business Continuity Management Committee on their experiences in the field. The leaders of WBCM come from a diverse range of industries, and provide unique perspectives based on their experiences in the field.
In the aftermath of the tornadoes that hit Lee County, Alabama, on Mar. 3, 2019, causing at least 23 deaths, the DRI Foundation provided a donation to the Community Foundation of East Alabama.
What We Do
The DRI Foundation’s mission is to provide financial, educational and volunteer aid to those who have been impacted by disasters. The Foundation strives to provide training and employment to those who have specific needs that will further the goal of creating a more prepared and resilient world.
The DRI Foundation’s Women in Business Continuity Management (WBCM) community provides female business continuity, crisis management and disaster recovery professionals with learning and networking opportunities. It also has an equal and much deeper purpose – a forum for women supporting women!
Each year the DRI Foundation provides an opportunity for DRI Certified Professionals from around the world to volunteer their skills and abilities to make a positive impact in the communities where DRI International’s annual conference is held.
