Webinar | August 12, 2020 10:30 AM – 11:30 AM ET

Amidst the COVID-19 crisis, leaders have relied on data to drive decision making and the experience of others to model their reforms. While not entirely new concepts, the ongoing pandemic and reverberating second-order impacts highlight the importance of understanding a diverse set of reform pathways and indicators. This workshop endeavors to apply these lessons to broader crisis environments through both a panel discussion and tool demonstration. Panelists discuss how data-driven decision-making, communities of leaders and applying reform models of other jurisdictions have shaped the COVID-19 response and how we can apply these approaches to broader crisis environments all over the world. Additionally, ISE will officially launch our Reform Sequencing Tracker – an ambitious endeavor and tool to codify the sequence of government reforms after periods of crisis.

This session is part of the Fragility Forum 2020 Virtual Series.
