Meet our Council of Resilience Leaders

Amplifying our ability to build resilience in Maricopa County and beyond

The Council of Resilience Leaders, made up of influential individuals from across the county representing private, nonprofit and public sectors, supports KER in building Maricopa County's capacity to adapt to shocks and stresses in ways that provide added benefits for its residents.

By serving as knowledgeable ambassadors for resilience work, raising the profile of our mutual interests in community resilience, and providing recommendations on future opportunities, resources and potential partners, the council is helping us strategically broaden and deepen our impact — locally, nationally and internationally.

The core responsibilities of the council are to:

Build Awareness regarding the mission and work of KER.  Take Action to build resilience.  Award the annual Resilience Prize.
