Creating Resilience //
The Diogenec team maintains academic affiliations that provide access to current knowledge, emerging concepts, and ongoing research. This active engagement has resulted in the creation of cogent educational and training initiatives that contribute to professional growth and institutional preparedness.
Effective responsiveness begins with training and practice before a crisis occurs. When the time comes, Diogenec clients are ready with well-rehearsed crisis communications plans, emergency protocols, and clearly-defined processes to lead the organization forward to a “new normal.”
